The Mexican team overcame 1-0 with a goal by Giovani Dos Santos to Holland, but within six minutes, Sneijder, Huntelaar and Pedro Proenca killed the dream and defeated Tri duel 2-1 knockout

Three times Robben went to the pool until the referee Pedro Proenca criminal yield 4 minutes to go, although in injury time.

Mexico did all well over 90 percent of the party, but relaxed and a distraction for the Netherlands is half a goal.

Three minutes from time, ghosts reappeared in Fortaleza. Huntelaar dropped ball corner kick for Sneijder, who did not think twice and took a brutal punch to the goal of Guillermo Ochoa fierrazo. Mexico 1-1 Netherlands.

And 90 +2 Mexican debacle came. In a very close play Robben "fell" to the ground by a lack of Rafael Marquez, Portuguese referee (worthy disciple of Codesal) scored the penalty. The 'Hunter' Huntelaar took the ball and fired space to change the penalty for goal and 2-1 for the Dutch.

Ochoa was the figure, but Mexico was left on the shore.
