Netherlands went through quater-finals of the World Cup following their 2-1 victory over Slovakia.

Ill discipline by the Slovakians gave the Dutch side their second goal in a very windy Moses Mabhiba Stadium in Durban this afternoon.

While two defenders were confronting the referee, Wesley Sneijder went ahead and calmly scored the Dutch’ second goal in the 84th minute.

Striker Arjen Robben scored the Netherlands’ first goal in the first half.

Slovakia midfielder Robert Vittek contributed a consolation goal in the 90th minute, but it was too little too late.

With a victory, their 23rd unbeaten performance in a row, the Orange now wait to see who go through to the quarters in the clash between Brazil and Chile at Ellis Park this evening.
