Holland celebrated their qualification for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ with a 2-0 victory over Norway in Rotterdam.

The Dutch, who secured their passage to South Africa at the weekend, overcame a slow start to dominate the Norwegians, who remain bottom of Group Nine, and claim a seventh win out of seven in their pool.

Arjen Robben inspired the result, providing the free-kick from which Andre Ooijer opened the scoring after 33 minutes before drilling an excellent second six minutes after the break.

FYR Macedonia moved level with second-placed Scotland in the group by beating Iceland 2-0 in Skopje. Aco Stojkov (10) and substitute Filip Ivanovski (85) secured the points for the hosts, enabling them to leapfrog their opponents in the race for the runner-up spot.

The Macedonians are now on seven points along with Scotland, who have a slightly better goal difference and a game in hand.
