Oh Yeah 2-1

Holland - Slovakia
18' 1-0 Robben
84' 2-0 Sneijder
94' 2-1 Vittek (pen)
Well, they keep on winning and that's certainly the way to go. Game-wise there's still room for improvement. Fantastic goal by Arjen Robben in the first half but after that moment Holland seemed to lean back as they have done before. Slovakia got a couple of good chances to equalize but the Dutch goalkeeper Stekelenburg excelled. Then in the 84th minute a great action by Dirk Kuyt which Sneijder only had to tip in. In the very last minute of play Slovakia got a questionable penalty but by then it was already game-over. So, they are in the quarter finals which is great but against a team like Brazil they have to play better then they did before.
