"It was a match of the highest quality. We limited Chile to a handful of opportunities, we neutralised them extremely effectively - and particularly in the second half we created more chances," Louis van Gaal, Netherlands coach.

FULL-TIME: A slow first-half led to a dominant performance by the Dutch, who controlled much of the play and were rewarded with two very good goals. The Netherlands win Group B and will face the second-placed team from Group A, while Chile settle for second in their Group B, which sets them up for a Round of 16 encounter with Group A's top finisher. Spain restored a bit of pride by beating Australia 3-0 in the concurrent match.

GOAL: Arjen Robben makes a great run and unselfishly passes off to Memphis Depay who tucks it away in the corner, just beating Marcelo Diaz to the ball. That goal surely gives the Netherlands all nine points in Group B.

Van Gaal makes his last change as Dirk Kuyt looks to be cramping up in the final minutes and brings on the young defender, who is making only his second appearance for the Oranje.
