  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Little has been seen of the Netherlands, remember they were the top scorers in the group stage, as an attacking force so far. The temperature perhaps has something to do with that, but it has not affected a lively Mexico team who have fashioned several openings.

  • 42

    A blow for the Dutch as midfield enforcer Nigel de Jong goes off with an injury.
