Netherlands showed their Viking-warrior spirit as the team rallied late in the game and defeat Mexico 2-1 in the round of 16 action World Cup action on Sunday. Mexico’s Giovani dos Santos gave them the lead early in the second half but can’t keep up towards the end as El Tri vows out of the World Cup.
Netherlands resiliency paid off from their secret weapon Wesley Sneijder who tied the game at 88-minute. The Dutch midfielder latches the ball after it bounces towards him.
But the game winner came at game stopper 90+4 minute from Klaas Huntelaar penalty goal that advances the Netherlands in the World Cup quarterfinals.
Van Persie and Arjen Robben didn’t scores but team win is what soccer is all about. This time it came from unlikely heroes.
