  1. Mexico Ousted by Late Dutch Goals

    It looked as though Mexico might progress to the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time in 28 years, but two late Dutch goals doomed El Tri. Despite Mexico’s early domination, the Netherlands equalized in the 88th minute. A few minutes later, winger Arjen Robben took a questionable dive, but drew the penalty for the Dutch. Goalkeeper Memo Ochoa guessed right, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar shot left, the net shook, and the Dutch won 2-1.
