In one of the biggest match in FIFA World Cup 2010, the Dutch team sends the Samba team back to their country, to concentrate for the World Cup Football in 2014. On Tuesday, July 6, Holland will play against the winner of Uruguay vs Ghana at the Green Point Stadium, Cape Town in the first semi-final of World Cup football 2010.

The favoured Brazilians went up 1-0 after just ten minutes when Robinho finished off a perfectly weighted Felipe Melo pass, and the South Americans went into the half-time break deservedly ahead.

But an error from Julio Cesar in the 53rd minute completely flipped the script, with the Brazilian goalkeeper rushing out and colliding with Felipe Melo, who nodded the ball into his own net. 15 minutes later, Dirk Kuyt flicked a corner on for little Wesley Sneijder to head home and put the Dutch on top 2-1.

Felipe Melo was sent off for stamping on Arjen Robben in the 74th minute, and Brazil were unable to draw the game level once again, with the Netherlands holding on for a famous victory.

Now it is expected that two European Country, Holland and Spain may play for the FIFA trophy at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth on July 11.
