Substitute Tim Krul saved two spot kicks as the Netherlands defeated Costa Rica 4-3 on penalties to move to within one game of a second successive FIFA World Cup final appearance.

Louis van Gaal's unusual decision to replace Jasper Cillessen in the 120th minute of a goalless last-eight tie was rewarded when the Newcastle United FC No1 tipped wide attempts from Bryan Ruiz and Michael Umana. The Oranje – denied throughout by a combination of the woodwork, stoic defending and Krul's opposite number Keylor Navas – will play Argentina on Wednesday for a place in the decider.
