  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    A loss will not condemn the Netherlands to an early exit but it will put them on the brink. Can they respond in this second half and get anything from the game?
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    David Crossan, Metalist Stadium: Netherlands were on top before Germany scored those two outstanding Gomez goals, both created by his Bayern club-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger with perfectly weighted passes. Bert van Marwijk knows the Dutch Group B hopes will go down to the final game but won't want to face Portugal with no points and no goals on the board.
  • 45+2
    Stekelenburg (Netherlands) makes a save.
    A fantastic save prevents the Netherlands from going three down. A free-kick from the left is deflected skywards by Arjen Robben and is looping towards the top corner. Maarten Stekelenburg backtracks brilliantly and manages to turn over.

  • 41
    Sneijder (Netherlands) delivers the corner.
  • Goal
    38

    The same combination doubles the German advantage as Bastian Schweinsteiger slides in the FC Bayern München forward on the right side of the area, and he drives past Maarten Stekelenburg. Holland are well and truly up against it now.

    24
    Gomez (Germany) scores!
    With a first clear opening Germany go ahead. Thomas Müller drifts in from the right and finds Bastian Schweinsteiger centrally. A neat pass is collected on the turn sublimely by the forward, who then beats Maarten Stekelenburg beautifully.
