Video: Brazil crashes out, Netherlands progresses to semifinals

Netherlands is the first team qualified in the semifinals of the 2010 World Cup after beating 2-1 Brazil. Dunga's players started strongly the match and Robinho put his team ahead in minute 10 after overtaking a static Dutch defense. Netherlands does not quit and levels the score in min. 53 when a cross from Wesley Sneijder was deflected by Melo into his own goal. Fifteen minutes later (68') the same Sneijer headed Netherlands ahead following a corner from Arjen Robben which was flicked on nicely by Dirk Kuyt. For Melo it was not a good day, he was red booked by the referee after stepping on Robben. In the semifinals Netherlands is gonna meet the winner of the Uruguay-Ghana match. To note that in a friendly game prior to the tournament the Dutch smashed Ghana by 4-1.
