Minute Commentary
90' LATE SHOW SENDS DUTCH THROUGH
The Netherlands reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup with a late, late show against Mexico at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza. After Giovani dos Santos handed the Mexicans an early second half lead, Louis van Gaal's side hit back with a goal in the 88th-minute from Wesley Sneijder before Klaas-Jan Huntelaar kept his cool from the penalty spot in the fourth minute of stoppage time to send the 'Oranje' through in dramatic fashion. It was heartbreak for Los Ticos who have now fallen at the round-of-16 juncture in their last six World Cup campaigns. Dos Santos opened the scoring four minutes after the break. Ron Vlaar's loose header fell kindly into his path and the Villarreal striker held off Daley Blind before firing an early 25 metre strike past goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen. With time running out Robben's inswinger was headed back by Huntelaar allowing Sneijder to thump his right-foot shot like an arrow into the bottom corner. And then deep in added time Arjen Robben was felled in the box by Rafael Marquez leaving referee Pedro Proenca from Portugal no choice but to point his finger to the spot. Huntelaar, who replaced Robin van Persie, kept his cool to fire his right-foot drive hard and low into the bottom left-hand corner past the brilliant Guillermo Ochoa to win the game.
90' FULL-TIME
The Netherlands are through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup after a dramatic 2-1 win against Mexico at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza.
90' WHAT A COMEBACK
The 1974, 1978 and 2010 runners-up have shown plenty of heart this afternoon. Now every Dutch player is back defending with time almost up.
90' HUNTELAAR SCORES
Andres Guardado is shown a yellow card just before Klaas-Jan Huntelaar steps up. The Schalke striker fires his right-foot drive hard and low into the bottom left-hand corner with Guillermo Ochoa going the other way. Great penalty!
90' PENALTY TO THE NETHERLANDS
Rafael Marquez sticks a foot out and brings down Arjen Robben. Referee Pedro Proenca from Portugal points to the spot and books Marquez.
90' STOPPAGE TIME
We're into SIX added minutes of stoppage time at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza. This last-16 tie looks to be heading to extra-time, although somebody can still win this.
88' DUTCH EQUALISER
Arjen Robben's inswinger is headed back by Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Wesley Sneijder takes aim and thumps his right-foot shot like an arrow into the bottom corner. Not even the brilliant Guillermo Ochoa could get anywhere near it!
88' GOOOAAALLL!!!
WESLEY SNEIJDER
87' ANOTHER CORNER
Dirk Kuyt forces a 10th corner of the game for the Dutch and over comes Arjen Robben.
85' OFFSIDE FLAG UP
Guillermo Ochoa makes a stunning point-blank save from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. The goalkeeper didn't know that the flag had already been raised on the far side.
84' ANYWHERE WILL DO
Mexico are hitting the ball 40-50 metres, handing the ball back to their opponents. Dirk Kuyt wins his side a corner from the right.
82' TIME RUNNING OUT
Francisco Rodriguez fells Arjen Robben and the Dutch immediately get on with the game. Mexico are sitting back and looking to counter-attack.
80' THUMPED OVER
Carlos Salcido thumps his right-foot shot over the crossbar as play gets underway again at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza. Louis van Gaal has switched his line-up to a back four as they go in search for a goal.
78' COOLING BREAK
The cooling break arrives just at the right time for Mexico with time running out for the Dutch. El Tri have fallen at the round-of-16 juncture in their last five World Cup campaigns but know if they can end that run a seemingly winnable last-eight clash with Greece or Costa Rica awaits.
76' TWO SUBSTITUTES
Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez replaces Oribe Peralta while another United player - Robin van Persie comes off with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar replacing the prolific striker for the Dutch.
74' FINE STOP
Rafael Marquez struggles to get to Arjen Robben whose right-foot attempt is well blocked by Guillermo Ochoa from close-range.
72' DUTCH RUSHING
Hector Herrera whips the ball across the face of goal looking for Oribe Peralta, but it drifts away for a throw. The Netherlands are looking to get on with the game now as Wesley Sneijder rushes his attempt from outside the area. His shot flies way over the crossbar.
69' NO PENALTY
Arjen Robben falls over Miguel Layun and claims for a penalty. Referee Pedro Proenca had a good look at the situation before allowing play to continue. Paul Aguilar is shown a yellow card for hacking down Memphis Depay, which means he will miss the next game should Mexico progress through to the quarter-finals.
66' FLAG IS UP
Memphis Depay is felled by Andres Guardado. The Dutch get on with the game as they press for an equaliser. At the other end substitute Javier Aquino threads the ball through for Oribe Peralta but the flag goes up.
64' SO CLOSE
Arjen Robben's left-footed cross is so close to finding Wesley Sneijder in the middle. Suddenly the game has really opened up and it's all 'Oranje' pressure.
62' DOS SANTOS COMES OFF
The goalscorer Giovani dos Santos is replaced by Javier Aquino as Miguel Herrera looks to shut up shop with half an hour still left to play.
61' DEFLECTED WIDE
Arjen Robben races down the line before finding Wesley Sneijder, but his shot deflects up and over the crossbar with Guillermo Ochoa wrong-footed.
59' WHAT A SAVE
Guillermo Ochoa makes a stunning save to deny Stefan de Vrij what looked like a certain equaliser. The Feyenoord defender sends Dirk Kuyt's flick hurtling towards goal, but Ochoa parries the ball superbly onto the post.
57' NETHERLANDS CHANGE
Memphis Depay comes in at left wing-back for the departing Paul Verhaegh. That will mean a change of formation for Louis van Gaal's side.
56' GOOD STRIKE
Jasper Cillessen is forced into an acrobatic save to deny Oribe Peralta from range.
55' DUTCH COMING OUT
The Dutch are coming out now having to attack their opponents. A couple of corners from Arjen Robben are cleared and then Daley Blind fails to get any power on his long-range attempt which is always heading wide.
52' AGAINST THE WALL
The Netherlands win a free-kick about 27 metres from goal. Wesley Sneijder's right-foot strike hits Paul Aguilar right in his face and Mexico clear their lines.
49' MEXICO LEAD
Giovani dos Santos breaks the deadlock to the delight of the thousands of Mexican supporters inside the Castelao arena. Ron Vlaar's loose header falls to Giovani dos Santos and he makes room from 25 metres out to hold off Daley Blind and bend his left-foot shot nice and early past Jasper Cillessen, who was given no chance. Great goal!
49' GOOOAAALLL!!!
GIOVANI DOS SANTOS
48' MEXICO CHANGE
Diego Reyes has come on for the injured Hector Moreno as expected. First half temperatures reached an incredible 38.8 degrees celcius which is 101 degrees farenheit.
46' HERE WE GO AGAIN
Mexico have only made it past the round of 16 twice, both times when it was the host country of the World Cup, in 1970 and 1986. The Dutch are three-time finalists and are looking to win the trophy for the first time in their history. This last-16 clash has the look of going the distance.
45' NO GOALS IN BAKING FORTALEZA
It remains goalless between the Netherlands and Mexico in their last-16 World Cup clash at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza. Chances have been few and far between in hot and humid conditions although there have been two good penalty appeals. Hector Herrera looked to have been taken clean out by a combination of Ron Vlaar and Stefan de Vrij while at the other end Arjen Robben was left annoyed with referee Pedro Proenca when he was felled in the box by Rafael Marquez and Hector Moreno. Despite the claims, Los Ticos have been the more dominant side and could have taken the lead when Giovani dos Santos tested Jasper Cillessen but the Dutch goalkeeper made a fine save with his legs. Still a long way to go in this encounter!
45' HALF-TIME
Hector Moreno needed some medical attention after the incident and he looks as though his game is finished. The whistle blows for the break in Fortaleza with no goals.
45' NO PENALTY
Rafael Marquez and Hector Moreno take Arjen Robben down in the box after Marquez gave the ball away to Robin van Persie. Wesley Sneijder races to referee Pedro Proenca incensed that the Dutch have not been awarded a penalty in that incident.
45' STOPPAGE TIME
We're into FOUR added minutes at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza.
45' GOOD SAVE
Jasper Cillessen makes a fine stop with his legs as Giovani dos Santos looked to fire his shot past the goalkeeper at his near post. Bruno Martins Indi then gives Dos Santos a whack in his back with the Villarreal striker already lying on the ground. He didn't like it much and referee Pedro Proenca is forced to step in and break up a potential heated moment.
41' KUYT WORKING HARD
Now former Liverpool man Dirk Kuyt is back defending and earns his side a goal kick after covering well. Robin van Persie tries to get in around the back and that forces Francisco Rodriguez to clear away.
39' GOOD COVERING
Miguel Layun is seeing so much of the ball at the moment and he gets it again down the left, but once again fails to deliver a decent cross for Oribe Peralta to feed on. Rafael Marquez covers well as Dirk Kuyt looks to get in behind.
36' PLAY UNDERWAY AGAIN
Referee Pedro Proenca gets play back underway at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza. The humidity and heat must be unbearable. The three minutes taken for the cooling break will be added on at the end of the half. Miguel Layun fails to get enough pace on his cross to find Oribe Peralta in the box.
32' COOLING BREAK
The Mexicans have conceded just one goal so far - Ivan Perisic's late strike for Croatia when they were already three up. The Dutch have found the heat difficult to play in so far this afternoon and seem happy enough to sit deep and slow the game right down. Louis van Gaal's side keep some possession until a free-kick is given. We're now going to have a cooling break which will last for three minutes!
30' GREAT CONTROL
Robin van Persie controls the ball superbly, but the Manchester United striker is at full stretch as he looks to get his shot away. Oribe Peralta bursts through a couple of defenders before laying his pass off to Giovani dos Santos who tests Jasper Cillessen.
28' NO NONSENSE
Georginio Wijnaldum looks to be having problems with his eye in the penalty area. He's had to come off the pitch for a change of contact lens possibly. No nonsense defending from right wing-back Dirk Kuyt, who hammers the ball up field.
25' PARRIED AWAY
Arjen Robben falls over on the edge of the box and the Mexican players are incensed with the winger, feeling that he took a dive. The Castelao arena is full of Mexico supporters and they are making quite a noise. They know their players will be used to this kind of heat. Carlos Salcido's strike is parried away to safety by goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.
22' NO PENALTY
Hector Herrera is almost taken out by a combination of Ron Vlaar's right boot and Stefan de Vrij. Herrera claims a penalty, but he gets nothing.
21' INCHES WIDE
Hector Moreno's ball picks out Giovani dos Santos at the back post. He controls the ball well before pulling it back to Oribe Peralta and he sets up Hector Herrera, but the 24-year-old Porto midfielder drags his shot inches wide of the far post.
18' HANDBALL CLAIMS
Arjen Robben's cross hits defender Rafael Marquez and he claims a handball, but referee Pedro Proenca from Portugal waves for play to continue.
16' DELICIOUS CROSS
Livewire Miguel Layun delivers a delicious left-footed cross which is begging to be tucked into the back of the net, but there is nobody busting a gut to get into the middle to gobble it up. Mexico, however, are on top.
13' TACTICAL CHANGE
Bruno Martins Indi slips into the middle of the Netherlands backline, in between Ron Vlaar and Stefan de Vrij. Nigel de Jong didn't appear to be carrying a knock, so it looks very much as though head coach Louis van Gaal has made a tactical change.
10' EARLY DUTCH CHANGE
Nigel de Jong has been surprisingly substituted with Bruno Martins Indi replacing him with less than 10 minutes of the match gone.
10' FLYING HEADER
Paul Aguilar tumbles over the top of Arjen Robben and referee Pedro Proenca from Portugal awards the Dutch a free-kick on halfway. The Bayern Munich winger is then brought crashing down to the floor again wide right. Wesley Sneijder's inswinging ball is headed away by the flying Francisco Rodriguez.
8' COUNTER ATTACKING
With 10 goals, the Netherlands were the highest scorers among teams in the 2014 World Cup group stage. We will see if they will sit in and allow Mexico to attack them so they can hit them on the break through the pace ace Arjen Robben.
6' EARLY STRIKE
The Mexicans make a confident start and Miguel Layun is determined to test Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, but the ball was always heading over the crossbar. Robin van Persie is all alone up top as the men in orange allow the Central American side the ball in these early stages.
3' SYSTEMS AS EXPECTED
Netherlands boss Louis Van Gaal has set his side up in a 5-3-2 formation which may change to a 4-3-3, while eccentric Mexico manager magic man Miguel Herrera has set his side up with a 4-2-3-1 system.
1' WE'RE UNDERWAY
Here we go then at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza for this World Cup last-16 clash. The pitch "is not that good," according to the Dutch coach Louis van Gaal - bobbly in places is an understatement. The Netherlands are wearing their famous 'Oranje' kit while Mexico - followed by a large number of supporters are in their all-green number.
0' NETHERLANDS TEAM NEWS
Robin van Persie will lead the Dutch attack in Fortaleza after missing the victory over Chile because of suspension. The Manchester United striker netted twice in the Netherlands' opener against Spain, as well as scoring against Australia. He also got both goals against Mexico the last time the nations played in 2010. Nigel de Jong, Arjen Robben, Daley Blind and Stefan de Vrijare have all been passed fit and start as does Paul Verhaegh. Leroy Fer and Bruno Martins Indi have to make do with a place on the bench.
0' MEXICO TEAM NEWS
Coach Miguel Herrera is without Jose Juan Vasquez, who is missing through suspension, so former Fulham man Carlos Salcido comes in to deputise in his place.

0' MATCH PREVIEW
The Netherlands take on Mexico in a mouthwatering last-16 World Cup clash at The Castelao arena in Fortaleza. The Dutch are one of the tournament favourites after convincingly coming through a tough pool containing Spain, Chile and Australia. They blitzed reigning champions Spain 5-1 and beat both Australia and Chile, finishing top of the group scoring 10 goals. Mexico also did well to progress from a group undefeated containing tournament favourites and hosts Brazil, as well as Croatia and Cameroon, so today's clash has all the ingredients to become a classic. History is on the European side - Mexico have lost three and drawn one of their last four encounters with the Oranje, conceding at least two goals on each of these occasions. The match offers El Tri the chance to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 1986. They have fallen at the round-of-16 juncture in their last five World Cup campaigns and know if they can end that run a seemingly winnable last-eight clash with Greece or Costa Rica awaits. The Dutch have won nine of their last 10 World Cup matches but Mexico have scored a goal in each of their last 11 World Cup matches against European nations, losing just two of these games. Considering all this, we really should be for another goal fest this afternoon. Follow me on Twitter: @RazMirza
0' VAN GAAL WARY OF MEXICO
Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal is wary of the threat Mexico will pose in the hot and humid conditions in Fortaleza. They have fined tuned their strategy to defend and will base it on lesson learnt from its previous match with Chile, in which the Dutch team won 2-0. "There's not such a big difference in the way that Chile plays and Mexico plays," said 62-year-old van Gaal. "They play according to their quality, their skills and they're very eager to win and this eagerness to win is the best part of football."
0' EARLY NETHERLANDS TEAM NEWS
After missing the victory over Chile because of suspension, Robin van Persie will lead the Dutch attack in Fortaleza against a Mexico side that defended superbly to keep Brazil at bay on the same ground. The Manchester United striker netted twice in the Netherlands' opener against Spain, as well as scoring against Australia. He also got both goals against Mexico the last time the nations played in 2010. Nigel de Jong, Arjen Robben, Daley Blind and Stefan de Vrijare are all carrying knocks ahead of this encounter, whilst question-marks remain over the likes of Leroy Fer and Bruno Martins Indi.
0' MARQUEZ READY FOR CHALLENGE
Mexico have conceded just one goal in three games in Brazil, but former Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez is aware of the challenge posed by the Dutch who have scored more than anyone else in the competition with 10 goals from their three group games. "It will be very difficult, but we have not sat back and tried to keep the score at 0-0 against any team we have faced so far."
0' EARLY MEXICO TEAM NEWS
Eight months ago Mexico looked set for one of the greatest humiliations in the country's football history. Now they are riding a Latin American wave at the World Cup. A disastrous qualification campaign put them on the brink of elimination. However, as they ended a 2-1 defeat away to Costa Rica in their final CONCACAF qualifier, they received a lifeline from the unlikeliest of sources. Two goals in stoppage time by the already qualified United States away to Panama handed the Mexicans a second chance through a playoff against New Zealand despite having won just twice in 10 qualifiers. Coach Miguel Herrera will be without Jose Juan Vasquez, who is missing through suspension, so former Fulham man Carlos Salcido could deputise in his place.
0' PLAYER TO WATCH
Arjen Robben, Netherlands: Scoring two goals and dovetailing in devastating fashion with Robin van Persie, Robben helped rip Spain's defense apart in that jaw-dropping 5-1 win that signaled the end of an era for the now-deposed world champions. He then opened the scoring to set the Netherlands on their way to a 3-2 win over Australia that clinched qualification.
0' NETHERLANDS v MEXICO: MATCH STORY
SHARP SHOOTERS: Nobody who has watched them at this tournament will be surprised that Holland top the table when it comes to shooting accuracy - 76 per cent of their efforts on goal have hit the target, more than any other side in Brazil. Compare this to Mexico, whose 45 per cent of shots on target is only greater than six other teams, five of which have been eliminated (low-scoring Greece are the sixth).The Mexicans' wastefulness in front of goal could come back to haunt them against the competition's current top scorers. POOR PASSERS: While there is little doubt that Holland have been one of the most entertaining sides in Brazil so far, their passing does leave a lot to be desired. With just an 82 per cent pass completion rate, only five sides have been more careless in possession. Mexico's 85 per cent pass success rate is above the tournament average and suggests they will find themselves with plenty of the ball against the Dutch, but it's how they use it which will determine their fate. TRAFFIC JAMS LIKELY: Each of these teams has clearly preferred one flank to the other so far, and this could cause some congestion. The Dutch have preferred to attack from their left, completing a larger share of passes from this side - 22 per cent - than any other team at the finals. Mexico have instead favoured the right, where 17 per cent of their passes have originated - the fourth highest percentage. With both sides therefore trying to use the same side of the pitch as their primary outlet, it will be the team that can best support their wide players which is likely to prevail. CONDITIONS: While the Netherlands have passed some tough tests from high-calibre opposition of late - having won nine of the last 10 World Cup matches - injury worries and tough conditions could play into the hands of their opponents. The higher temperature and humidity of an early kick-off could favour Mexico, who are far more used to such conditions. The Mexicans, though, have been knocked out at this stage in each of the five previous World Cups and their poor record against the Dutch could see them eliminated at the first knockout phase once again.
0' MATCH OFFICIALS
The referee in charge of this encounter is Pedro Proenca from Portugal. The 43-year-old took charge of the games between Cameroon-Croatia and Japan-Colombia in the group stage. In 2012 he took charge of the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea as well as the European Championship final between Spain and Italy. He will be joined by two assistants Bertino Miranda and Jose Trigo while Carlos Vera from Ecuador will act as the fourth official. Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal has urged Portuguese referee Proenca to allow water breaks during the match, given the mercury is set to tip 30 degrees Celsius.
