10 mins GOAL Netherlands 0-1 Brazil
You have to see this goal to believe it. Felipe Melo is on the halfway line and he plays a simple, direct pass forward where, incredibly, Robinho is onside and 20 yards out – he takes his time before slotting past Maarten Stekelenburg.
53 mins GOAL Netherlands 1-1 Brazil
Didn’t see that coming – and neither did Julio Cesar. Wesley Sneijder curls over a left-footed cross from the Dutch right and Cesar, usually so reliable, comes for it, gets nothing on it and it clips the top of Felipe Melo’s head before creeping into the corner.
68 mins GOAL Netherlands 2-1 Brazil
What a story we have unfolding in Port Elizabeth. The Netherlands have come from behind to lead Brazil, the hot favourites for the World Cup. Arjen Robben curls over a corner from the right, Dirk Kuyt flicks on at the near post and there is Wesley Sneijder to head into the corner. Incredible.
73 mins RED CARD Felipe Melo (Brazil)
Brazil’s task just got an awful lot harder. Felipe Melo tries to tackle Arjen Robben and when the Dutch winger goes to ground, Melo seems to stamp on him. Yuichi Nishimura immediately gets his red card out and there are few complaints from Melo.
