Robin Van Persie and The Netherlands battled back from a goal down to send the brazillians crashing out of the 2010 World Cup in the Quarter Finals. Brazil took a well deserved lead through Robinho in the 10th minute, who had previously had a goal disallowed for offside. The Netherlands were now staring at a mountain, with a real€ hill to climb. The Netherlands breathed life back into their semi-final fight after the scores went level 8 minutes into the second half, even if it did take Brazil’s Melo to head the ball into his own net. Quarter of an hour later The Netherlands sealed the match through a Dirk Kuyt flick on to Wesley Sneijder, who stuck the ball into the back of the net to stun fans world wide, and to leave the Brazillians speechless, and packing!
