I think Holland is too strong for Costa Rica. And also Costa Rica in the semis would really bore the shit outta anyone.

This match will probably end up decided by penalty shoot out.

Sick of penalties. Sick of teams like Costa Rica and Greece (2004). They might as well put all 11 men in front of goal and invite the Dutch to take shots at them for 90 min.

Netherlands 0-0 Costa Rica AET (Pens 4-3): Dutch through to semis after Krul gamble pays off
By Dom Farrell | GOAL.com


Tim Krul was the unlikely hero as Netherlands secured a 4-3 shoot-out win over Costa Rica to book a World Cup semi-final place.

Over 120 goalless minutes in Salvador, Louis van Gaal's team struck the post or crossbar on three occasions and the Manchester United-bound manager unleashed an unexpected secret weapon from the bench during the dying seconds of extra time.

Krul, who has an unremarkable penalty record at Newcastle United, came on for Jasper Cillessen to save Costa Rica's second and last penalties from Celso Borges and Michael Umana. Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder and Dirk Kuyt were the Netherlands' flawless foursome.

It ends a remarkable journey for tournament outsiders Costa Rica, who won a group featuring Uruguay, Italy and England before beating Greece on spot-kicks.

But this proved a step too far as the Dutch, who had lost four of their previous five shootouts in major tournaments, banished their demons from 12 yards to book a semi-final appointment with Argentina

Costa Rica combined the organisation and attacking verve that has been their hallmark in Brazil, but ambition going forward left them exposed to Netherlands' incision on the break and indebted to inspirational goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Jorge Luis Pinto's team were in confident mood as the game entered its final stages before Sneijder rattled the post from a free-kick to herald a late onslaught.

But Van Persie proved uncharacteristically wasteful in spurning three goalscoring opportunities, including one close-range sitter, as Netherlands failed in their bid to avoid an extra half hour.

Sneijder crashed a shot into the bar, while Costa Rica substitute Michael Urena threatened to snatch the headlines that would ultimately be Krul's.

Memphis Depay, starting after twice netting from the bench in this tournament, gave Van Persie the game's first clear opening in the 21st minute but Navas closed the angle well and stopped Sneijder's follow-up.

Navas saved well in the 29th minute as Van Persie and Depay reversed their earlier roles, while a frantic Dutch clearance as Johnny Acosta looked to turn home Celso Borges' set-piece knockdown underlined a developing end-to-end feel.

Sneijder took a more direct approach from a 38th-minute free-kick, conceded by Junior Diaz, but Navas - quelling fears surrounding a shoulder injury that dogged him earlier in the week - clawed superbly around the post.

Robben's admission that he dived during the Netherlands' win over Mexico in the previous round dominated the pre-match build-up and Umana followed Diaz into the book after he too fouled the forward, who cleverly set up Sneijder to blaze over from the resulting 53rd-minute set play.

It was Joel Campbell and not his illustrious opponent who went to ground easily in the 60th minute as a promising Diaz raid down the left came to nothing, before Giancarlo Gonzalez headed over from another fine Christian Bolanos delivery to increase Dutch anxiety.

There was contact from Gonzalez and another booking as Robben went to ground theatrically in the 81st minute. Sneijder watched his free-kick from the left-hand corner of the area cannon back off the post.

Van Persie was then denied by Navas and he somehow failed to connect with Sneijder's delicious 88th-minute cross.

The Manchester United man was not done there - after Navas punched his free-kick away in stoppage-time, Costa Rica midfielder Yeltsin Tejeda cleared Van Persie's shot off the goal line via the crossbar; Daley Blind's low centre having caused complete chaos.

The start of extra time brought little let-up and Navas produced further acrobatics to keep out Ron Vlaar's header, but a flap at the resulting corner showed the Levante man was not infallible.

Vlaar was unimpressed as Urena sought a penalty at his expense, although Pinto's men were restricted to a largely defensive brief as the additional period progressed.

Urena crafted his team's best chance, drawing a nerveless 117th-minute save from Cillessen at the end of a jinking run and penalties arrived after Sneijder rattled the crossbar from distance with Navas rooted to the spot.

And when the heat was on from 12 yards shortly afterwards, Krul was anything but.
