Match Commentary

96' Don't forget that the Dutch will play the winner of tonight's all-Latin American tie between Chile and Brazil. Here's our preview of the game. I'll be back at 6pm GMT to kick off our live coverage.
96' That late Vittek strike means he is now Slovakia's all-time leading scorer, with 23. He overtakes the retired Szilard Nemeth.
95' Vittek salvagaes some pride with that final kick but he could have etched his name futher into Slovakian folklore if he'd snared those two great chances when the game was at 1-0. The Dutch can definitely be got at, no question. they will face the winners of Brazil v Chile later. Brazil then yes?
