FULL-TIME Cameroon 1-2 Netherlands
That’s the full-time whistle in Cape Town and it’s a deserved third win out of three for the Netherlands. They will go on to face Slovakia in the last 16 – and I dare say they will be a force to be reckoned with in the latter stages in South Africa and no mistake.

GOAL Cameroon 0-1 Netherlands
Deadlock broken. Robin van Persie plays a lovely one-two with Rafael van der Vaart on the edge of the Cameroon box and then skids a neat finish under the keeper from the angle to open the scoring. That’s his first goal of the tournament too.
GOAL Cameroon 1-1 Netherlands
Rafael van der Vaart raises an arm to block Geremi’s free-kick in the box and Chilean referee Pablo Pozo has no hesitation in awarding the spot-kick. Samuel Eto’o steps up – and smashes it home. Even Stevens.
GOAL Cameroon 1-2 Netherlands
Immediate impact from Arjen Robben, who cuts in from the right and fires in a 20-yard shot that rebounds off the Cameroon right-hand post. The ball falls to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar who keeps his composure to slot into an empty goal.
