Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    The final whistle goes on this attritional affair. The Dutch failed to capitalise on their first-half dominance, and a resiliant Azzurrini battled back into the game and - by way of a well-taken Fabio Borini goal - booked their final berth.
  • 90+7
    Depay (Netherlands) misses the target.
    A hoisted free-kick causes chaos in the area, and when the ball eventually drops at the back post, it is fired low into the side netting. A glorious chance, and so close.
