Match Commentary

90' Thanks for following today's game on ESPN Gamecast. Join us in half an hour for the other clash from this group, Japan vs Cameroon from Bloemfontein.
90' Comment from Dale Johnson: The Danes are going to struggle to get out of this group. Nothing in attack and a suspect defence.
90' The Dutch looked solid and were impressive at times in attack. Van Persie was their dangerman and the sprightly Elia added some much needed verve to their attacks. Worthy winners in the end, and you know there's more left in the tank.
