Match Commentary

93' Markus Merk blows the final whistle and Holland have started their World Cup with a win, courtesy of Man of the Match Arjen Robben. The Serbs improved after a poor start, but Robben's excellence made the Dutch deserving winners.
93' Zigic gets a toe to Djordjevic's cross. It goes wide and that looks like their final chance.
92' Nadj goes down 25 yards out but Kuyt's challenge is ruled legal.
