Holland come from behind to snatch last-gasp victory against Mexico Empty Holland come from behind to snatch last-gasp victory against Mexico

This World Cup gets more dramatic by the day. Two goals in the last six minutes, one of them a penalty in the dying moments, sent Holland through to the quarter-finals. Wesley Sneijder and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored them. Huntelaar had come on as a substitute for Robin van Persie and made a decisive contribution, but no-one had been so significant as Arjen Robben. He it was who sprinted towards the end of the stadium clutching his fists at the full time whistle. It was a run he had made over and over and over; he had done the most to drag the Dutch into this game and back into the World Cup.

Huntelaar produced a brilliant header from Robben’s corner in the 85th minute, laying the ball into Sneijder’s path for the equaliser. And then he scored from a penalty that Robben had won in the very last minute. Just when Mexico appeared to be on the edge of breaking a barrier that has stood before them for 28 years and will now haunt them for four more. For the sixth successive World Cup they have reached the knock out phase and been knocked out.

Holland did to them what Bulgaria did in 1994, Germany in 1998, the USA in 2002 and Argentina in 2006 and 2010. Just when they thought they had broken their barrier; just when they thought they might even go further. Now it is Holland who will be confident. Greece or Costa Rica stand between them and a place in the semi-final.

When Mexico took the lead it had not seemed possible. And yet by the final whistle, Holland could claim to have deserved it. Arjen Robben certainly could. For a long time, it felt like there was no way past Guillermo Ochoa and for a long time it felt like the conclusion would be that Robben could not do it on his own. Eventually, he was given some help by Huntelaar; eventually Ochoa was beaten. And Eventually the referee, Pedro Proença agreed: Robben had been turned down for two penalties when he was granted the third and Huntelaar sent Holland through.
