Spain vs. Netherlands
Minute Commentary
90' REVENGE IS SWEET
It was 1-1 at the break, and then the Netherlands burst into life. By the end it was 5-1 and the world champions were humbled by a stunning act of revenge. Even more amazing is the fact that it was Spain who took the lead, Xabi Alonso slotting home a 27th-minute penalty that had been won by Diego Costa. Then when Robin van Persie equalised with a brilliant header just before half time, still no-one envisaged what it could lead to. The second half gave birth to a tremendous Dutch performance that bore fruit when Arjen Robben controlled a long ball and turned Gerard Pique to score in the 53rd minute. There was a contentious third when Van Persie appeared to impede Iker Casillas, allowing Stefan de Vrij to score, and Casillas himself came a cropper soon after that when his poor control gifted a goal to Van Persie. There was still time for the rampant Robben to burst clear, evading goalkeeper and defenders to bury the fifth with aplomb. The Netherlands have arrived at the 2014 World Cup and the bar has been raised, whereas Spain need to regroup and remember what they can do. Group B is officially underway.
90' FULL TIME SPAIN 1 NETHERLANDS 5
Yes, you read it right. The Netherlands have beaten world and European champions Spain by a stunning five goals to one.
90' MARTINS INDI WAY
Pedro shows a cracking turn of pace to spin away from Blind and into the area, but Bruno Martins Indi, the most improved player on the pitch since his disastrous opening few minutes, stands up strong to win the ball.
90' END TO END STUFF
The Netherlands still aren't satisfied and keep on bursting forward as Sneijder finds himself right in front of goal and trips over to miskick horribly. Spain then go straight up the other end where Fernando Torres takes the ball around the keeper but is denied by a superb last-ditch Joel Veltman challenge.
87' DOUBLE CHANCE
Georginio Wijnaldum very nearly makes it six, shooting from close range after being set up nicely by Jeremain Lens, but this time Casillas stands up strong to make the save. Pique's clearance of the rebound is embarassingly poor and drops straight to the rampant Robben, who lets rip with an astonishing volley that Casillas narrowly manages to beat away.
86' CONFIDENCE HIGH
The Netherlands are oozing confidence now, and rightly so. At the moment Spain just can't get near them.
83' UNCHARTED TERRITORY
Spain's players, both on the pitch and on the bench, look utterly shellshocked. This is a situation many of them will have never been in before.
80' GOAL!!! NETHERLANDS
Spain's humiliation is complete as ARJEN ROBBEN bangs in the fifth. Wesley Sneijder relieves Cesar Azpilicueta of possession and instantly plays the ball over the halfway line for his colleague to chase. Robben outpaces Sergio Ramos and leaves Iker Casillas grounded with an inventive turn before beating two men on the line with an assured finish, his second of the night.
79' SUBSTITUTION
The latest in a procession of susbtitutions sees Van Persie given a standing ovation as he makes way for Jeremain Lens.
78' SUBSTITUTON
Silva has failed to create much in the second half, and is consequently hooked in favour of Cesc Fabregas.
77' SUBSTITUTION
De Vrij makes way for Joel Veltman.
76' RAMOS OFF TARGET
De Vrij's foul just outside the box concedes a free kick to Spain and Sergio Ramos. The defender curls his effort over the wall and two yards wide of the left-hand post.
75' CONGA TIME
The Dutch fans, joined by a liberal sprinkling of Brazilians, are doing the conga in the pouring rain. This is what the World Cup's all about.
72' GOAL!!! NETHERLANDS
Simply gobsmacking. Jordi Alba plays a routine backpass to Iker Casillas, whose terrible first touch allows ROBIN VAN PERSIE to steal the ball and slot into an empty net before Gerard Pique can get across to block. A strange sight to see from a goalkeeper with so much experience.
69' EARLY BIRD VAN PERSIE
an Persie surprises everyone by shooting early from 25 yards, and Casillas just about manages to get down in time to save the low, fizzing effort with his left foot.
68' GOAL DISALLOWED
David Silva has the ball in the net from close range, prompting wild celebrations from the Spanish players, but it's all cut short by a raised offside flag.
66' YELLOW CARD
Van Persie gets himself booked for cutting down Pedro as the winger moves away at speed.
64' GOAL!!! NETHERLANDS
A foul by Gerard Pique affords Wesley Sneijder the chance to deliver a free kick from the left flank, level with the area. He swings it to the back post, where Robin van Persie's jump appears to impede Iker Casillas, allowing STEFAN DE VRIJ to bundle the ball over the line. It was dubious whether the Real Madrid keeper would have reached the ball anyway, but his protestations earn him a yellow card.
63' SUBSTITUTIONS
Vicente del Bosque decides to shake things up with a double change, withdrawing Alonso and Costa in favour of Pedro and Fernando Torres, while Louis van Gaal's own substitution sees Georginio Wijnaldum replace De Guzman.
60' OFF THE BAR
Robben tears past Spain defenders with lightning pace and slips the ball right to Janmaat, who in turn flicks it outside Jordi Alba to the waiting Robin van Persie. The Manchester United forward takes a touch and hammers a half-volley past the helpless Casillas, the ball cannoning off the quivering crossbar.
58' FATES ALIGNING
It's sad to say, but this match could end up marking the start of the end of an era. Then again, Spain very much have the capability to turn this around. In conclusion, let's just see what happens - either way, this is a spectacular slice of World Cup action.
55' THE MADNESS OF KING COSTA
Diego Costa has a moment of madness, pushing his head into Bruno Martins Indi as the pair jostle before a Spain corner. The Netherlands man rolls around clutching his head, but it seems that the refereeing team missed the incident entirely. Costa could easily have been hated by two nations had that gone differently.
53' GOAL!!! NETHERLANDS
A long, diagonal ball catches out Spain again as Wesley Sneijder rolls the ball out to Daley Blind on the left and the wing back's searching pass finds ARJEN ROBBEN inside the box. A genius touch to control and a turn that leaves Gerard Pique on his backside is all that's needed to create the space for a simple finish. Dreamland for the Netherlands.
50' SIMPLE FOR CILLESSEN
Iniesta takes aim from 30 yards but can't generate any power, his low effort comfortably saved by Jasper Cillessen in the end.
49' TOUGH TACKLERS
The tackles are flying in again as no quarter is given with the changing of the clock. Even the Netherlands are keeping it clean for the moment, however, which is what we like to see.
46' SECOND HALF
The teams are back out and the second half is underway, with neither manager choosing to make any substitutions at half time. There has been a change in the weather, though, which has seen fit to dump a tropical monsoon onto the stadium.
45' VAN PERSIE RESTORES THE BALANCE
Robin van Persie gave a demonstration of class to bring the scores level just before half time of a game that's offered high-class football and high-class entertainment, the Manchester United striker running onto a long ball from Daley Blind to loop a brilliant header over Iker Casillas. That strike equalled Xabi Alonso's 27th-minute penalty, scored after Diego Costa had allowed Stefan de Vrij to catch his trailing leg inside the penalty area. First blood had nearly gone to the Netherlands when Arjen Robben sent Wesley Sneijder running clear in the eighth minute, only for the midfielder to shoot straight at the keeper, and David Silva did the same shortly before Van Persie's goal. The score, tied at 1-1, is an accurate reflection of how this game has gone, and let's hope for more of the same after the break. Stay tuned for all the action.
45' HALF TIME SPAIN 1 NETHERLANDS 1
It's half time here in Salvador, Brazil, where a late Robin van Persie strike means that the teams enter the break with a goal apiece.
44' GOAL!!! NETHERLANDS
Daley Blind proves that the quickest route to goal can be the most effective with a brilliant diagonal long ball that arcs beyond the Spanish back line. ROBIN VAN PERSIE gallops forward with gumption to loop a header over the stranded Iker Casillas and into the back of the net. What a game we have on our hands now.
43' THE MAGIC OF INIESTA
Andres Iniesta simply carves open the defence with a shimmy of the hips in midfield and a pass that's so simple yet so brilliant. The beneficiary is David Silva, who, one-on-one with Cillessen, tries a cheeky dink that the keeper gets a hand to and pushes wide.
41' YELLOW CARD
David Silva deftly flicks the ball forward to Costa, only to be dumped unceremoniously to the turf by a blatant bodycheck from De Vrij, who becomes the second Dutch player to enter the ref's notebook.
38' PASS MASTERS
Some breathtaking passing moves have been on show in the last few minutes as Spain have really turned it on. Vintage play from Xavi, Iniesta and Silva has left Dutch heads spinning as they try and fail to keep up. It's not leading to penetration, however, with Vicente del Bosque's side seemingly content to play out the half.
35' STRAIGHT AT THE KEEPER
A swirling De Guzman cross from the right wing sails high over the penalty area, where it's picked up on the opposite flank by Wesley Sneijder. The Galatasaray midfielder looks up and lays the ball off to De Jong, who evades Busquets with a Cruyff turn before sending in a well-struck effort that's just too close to Casillas.
32' DUTCH HEADS UP
The stretching Ramos proves unable to reach De Vrij's low cross from the left flank, but the same fate befalls the lurking Robin van Persie. The Netherlands don't look cowed by that Alonso goal and are bringing the game to their opponents.
30' BOO BOYS
Even before the goal, the Brazilian-born Costa was taking heavy stick from the fans inside this stadium whenever he touched the ball. Now the jeers could be classed as a cacophony, but he won't care.
27' GOAL!!! SPAIN
Stefan de Vrij brings down the twisting Costa inside the box, and the referee instantly points to the spot. The contact perhaps owed to the forward sticking out his trailing leg to ensure contact, but by the standards of this World Cup his conduct was exemplary. XABI ALONSO calmly steps up to roll a just-good-enough penalty wide of Jasper Cillessen's despairing dive and into the bottom-left corner. The world champions are ahead once again.
25' YELLOW CARD
After the Netherlands' first attack in some time breaks down, Jonathan de Guzman floors Andres Iniesta with a fairly innocuous tug and picks up the first booking of the evening. The only question is how that challenge constituted a yellow card when so many others so far haven't.
23' AN UNMARKED MAN
Xavi's corner from the left loops menacingly towards Sergio Ramos, ludicrously unmarked at the back post. It's incredibly fortunate for the Netherlands that the centre back is unable to make a connection on this occasion.
20' DON'T SHOOT!
The ball lands at the feet of Silva right in front of goal, and for some unguessable reason the diminutive playmaker does not shoot, instead laying the ball off to Iniesta, who proceeds to lose the ball. That was much more like the Spain of old, who preferred to pass the ball into the net from no more than two yards.
18' DIRECT TACTICS
Spain really are playing it more direct this time. The ball bounces off the hapless Martins Indi and straight to David Silva, who feeds Diego Costa with a slide-rule pass. The latter steams past Stefan de Vrij and smashes a shot well wide from an admittedly difficult angle.
15' REPEAT OFFENDER
Nigel de Jong shows he hasn't developed a sense of shame in the last four years with a needless barge on Sergio Busquets that gets nowhere near the ball. Again, the early stage of the game appears the only reason De Jong isn't given a yellow card.
13' CAUGHT NAPPING
Xavi catches the snoozing Bruno Martins Indi in possession and wastes no time in finding the run of Diego Costa. For a moment the striker looks set to shoot from inside the box, only to get the ball caught up in his feet and allow Ron Vlaar to make a desperate, excellent sliding tackle.
10' INIESTA'S OPENING
A trademark Andres Iniesta dribble takes the Barcelona man deep into enemy territory, where he's afforded the space to drive a 25-yard effort over the crossbar. This is turning into a pleasingly open affair.
8' SO CLOSE FOR SNEIJDER
The Netherlands go agonisingly close to taking the lead! Arjen Robben slips a delightful ball through the defence as his side counters at speed, giving Wesley Sneijder a clear run on goal. The midfielder pauses for a second to collect his thoughts, and it proves fateful as Iker Casillas plants his feet and stops the shot with his right glove.
5' SAVED BY THE CLOCK
Daryl Janmaat comes in late with an over-zealous tackle on Alonso, and is very lucky not to be booked. The number on the clock is probably the only thing that saved the Feyenoord defender.
4' POSSESSION PLAY WITH A TWIST
Contrary to expectations, it's the Netherlands who have excelled at winning and retaining possession in these opening few minutes. More predictably, both sides look cagey; only a hopeful and wayward Xabi Alonso ball over the top for Diego Costa has carried any attacking intent.
1' KICK OFF
We're underway here at the Arena Fonte Nova. With any luck this should be a cracker of a World Cup clash.
0' BEST OF ENEMIES
There's no trace of animosity as Iker Casillas and Robin van Persie shake hands under the direction of referee Nicola Rizzoli. Perhaps all has been forgiven.
0' STAR MEN UNSCATHED
Good (and surprising) news for fans of both countries; neither Costa nor Van Persie have so far got injured in the warm-up. Which one of these two stellar goalscorers will grab the headlines here in Salvador?
0' DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD
The inclusion of Diego Costa means we should see something of a departure in Spain's tactics in this game. Recent years have seen Cesc Fabregas deployed at the tip of midfield, with nobody playing up front. The change could lead to more direct play, but it will also give the Dutch defenders somebody to mark and stop them from getting quite so confused.
0' SPANISH SUPERIORITY
Spain have no fewer than six English-based players on the bench this evening (counting Pepe Reina and Cesc Fabregas) and just two on the pitch, in the shape of Cesar Azpilicueta and David Silva. One might even think they consider La Liga superior to the Premier League. Surely not?
0' HOT PROPERTY
We shouldn't see any repeat of the empty seats that were visible during this evening's earlier match between Mexico and Cameroon. Tickets for tonight's opening Group B clash have been changing hands for up to 1500 Brazilian Reals, almost as much as the country's average monthly wage.
0' LINE-UPS ANNOUNCED
The teams have been announced, and very few surprises have been sprung by either manager. As expected, David Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta make the cut for Spain, while Diego Silva has been passed fit to start up front. Jonathan de Guzman, at one point ruled out of this match through injury, has recovered in time to claim his starting spot for the Netherlands. A 4-5-1 formation sees Daley Blind and Daryl Janmaat lining up as wing backs, and Robin van Persie is fit to head up the side.
0' SPAIN V THE NETHERLANDS
The last time either Spain or the Netherlands stepped onto a pitch at a World Cup it was the 2010 final at Soccer City in Johannesburg, and it went on to become one of the most notorious matches of recent football history. Spain's 1-0 victory came against a backdrop of thuggish tactics by their opponents, whose bullying ways went against their country's age-old philosophy. Things are different now, with Louis van Gaal – the football purist – in charge of steering his country into the opening game of Group B, which many are calling this year's group of death. They'll certainly need a lot of good football to beat Vicente del Bosque's side, who have since added another trophy to their burgeoning cabinet in the shape of the 2012 European Championship. Make no mistake; this is one of the standout fixtures of the group stage, so join me, Luke Ostler, at 8pm for all the action from the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, Brazil.
0' REF WATCH
Italian referee Nicola Rizzoli will be taking charge of tonight's encounter. The 42-year-old possesses plenty of experience, having officiated in Serie A since 2002, and works as an architect when not taking to the pitch. Let's hope for a performance somewhat more studied than we've seen in the World Cup so far.
0' FABREGAS ON THE MOVE
Vicente del Bosque might prefer his players not to be distracted by outside concerns while at the World Cup, but Cesc Fabregas hasn't been able to manage this small task. The former Arsenal midfielder signed for Chelsea yesterday in a £30m deal from Barcelona, although he did state immediately the importance of having concluded the deal before the first game of the finals.
0' VAN PERSIE READY TO GO
A country's fears have been allayed with the news that star man Robin van Persie will be fit to start for the Netherlands tonight. The Manchester United striker had been suffering with a niggling groin problem, and was then involved in a bizarre kiting accident on a Brazilian beach that left him with cuts and bruises. Fortunately, he was able to say: "The last few days I have trained fully and so have no more problems. I am ready for it. Besides, for six years I have been playing with aches and pains; there is always something and I have learned to live with it”.
0' ONE TO WATCH
Spain's brilliant defensive record at international finals is often overlooked in favour of their passing play, but the fact is that they almost never concede goals. If the Netherlands want to change that tonight they'll need to look to Arjen Robben, a man whose dribbling skills can unlock the tightest of defences. A sterling five years at Bayern Munich have brought the winger his most successful spell in the game to date, and if he can find space this evening Spain's defenders will be worried.
0' SPAIN TEAM NEWS
It definitely ain't broke, so Del Bosque doesn't plan to fix it; Spain's line-up this evening should be largely the same as we've seen from them in the last three international tournaments, with a couple of choice additions. Controversial naturalised Brazilian Diego Costa is set to start up front, while Chelsea's Cesar Azpilicueta may get the nod at right back. There should also be a place for Manchester City's pocket wizard David Silva.
0' NETHERLANDS TEAM NEWS
Louis van Gaal has a mixture of the old and new in mind. Vintage stars Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder and Robin van Persie are all likely to make the cut tonight, where they'll be joined by newer faces including Norwich City's Leroy Fer in midfield and Bruno Martins Indi at the back. Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen should start between the sticks.
