The Netherlands came from behind to win the elimination match against Mexico 2-1. After Giovani dos Santos put Mexico up 1-0 in the 48th minute, Wesley Sneijder tied the game in the 88th minute.
With 6 extra minutes of stoppage time added after the 90th minute, Arjen Robben's consistent diving finally drew a penalty kick. Although he had done it in the box all game without the ref biting, the ref bizarrely awarded a penalty kick on Robben's dive in the 2nd minute of extra time.
Klaas Jan Huntelaar took the penalty kick for the Netherlands and placed it perfectly. Mexico was unable to get the equalizer with the few minutes left afterwards, and have been effectively eliminated by the Dutch.
