Chile Vs Netherlands, Group B - Live Score

MONDAY 23RD JUNE - 9:30PM (LOCAL) | ARENA CORINTHIANS, SAO PAULO

COMPLETED

Netherlands Chile

Netherlands: The Oranje are hurting from their loss in the final against Spain in the previous World Cup. The loss made them runners-up for the third time in the World Cup. They believed they could have won it had they planned better but they have come to Brazil with a positive mindset. Known as a side which is most divided amongst themselves, Louis van Gaal wants nothing less than a World Cup victory.

Chile: Having failed to progress from the group phase of the World Cup on five occasions, Chile have only reached the Round of 16 twice. The South American nation will want to improve the record, and are touted as the side that can dent either Spain or Netherland’s hopes of winning another World Cup trophy.

Commentary

(171 Mins)

Its Depays second goal in as many appearances from the bench. He could well be one of the breakout stars of this tournament if his side go far.

(169 Mins)

Netherlands 2-0 Chile. Memphis Depay turns home Robbens ball as the Dutch break with real pace at Chile following a free-kick. Once the ball comes to Robben he is away, running clear of the defence before squaring for Depay who cant miss.

(168 Mins)

Kongolo will be an unfamiliar name to many (including myself). The 20-year-old plays his club football for Feyenoord and has been capped twice by the national side.

(167 Mins)

Kuyts race has been run for the day and hes replaced by Terence Kongolo.

(166 Mins)

More appeals for a Chilean penalty. This time its Kuyt nibbling away at the heels of Sanchez who could well have conceded the spot-kick before Nigel de Jong slides in and puts the ball behind.

(165 Mins)

Sanchez whips in a corner and its behind by goalscorer Fer. Vargas steps up to take the second set-piece but this time its headed away to safety.

(165 Mins)

Dirk Kuyt is down with cramp. He has been up and down the left flank all game and done really well to nullify the threat of Isla from an unfamiliar position.

(163 Mins)

1-0

(162 Mins)

Theres a bit of a scramble in the box as Valdivia flicks a corner onto de Vrijs arm. It doesnt look like deliberate handball though and the ball falls to Sanchez who shoots wide.

(160 Mins)

Unless Chile can launch a remarkable turnaround here this result will take the Netherlands through as group winners. Anyone else looking forward to Chile vs Brazil already?

(160 Mins)

Leroy Fer celebrates his opening goal.

(159 Mins)

The first corner is headed behind by a defender and were going to have a change before the next one can be taken. Vargas is replaced by Pinilla.

(158 Mins)

Chile have won a corner here after good work from Sanchez on the left. They will have to wait to put the ball in though as Vargas and de Vrij are delivered a stern talking to by the referee for too much pushing and shoving.

(156 Mins)

Van Gaals side have been peppering the Chilean box with dangerous crosses throughout this half so it is little surprise to see them open the scoring in the same manner. Quite the impact from the substitute Fer.

(155 Mins)

Netherlands 1-0 Chile. The substitute Fer has scored with what looks like his first touch. Its another dangerous ball in to the Chile box and Fer heads home from close range.

(155 Mins)

Fer is on for Sneijder.

(153 Mins)

Great effort from Depay! Bravo tips over the youngsters shot from distance.

(153 Mins)

Another good ball in this time finds Kuyt unmarked in the box. He cant keep his shot on target though and Chile can breathe easily again.

(151 Mins)

Needless free-kick given away by Chile in a dangerous area Its going to be Sneijder to put the ball in and it is a dangerous one. Vargas gets his head on the ball before it can fall to a Dutch attacker and it goes behind for a corner.

(150 Mins)

Sanchez whips in a ball towards Beausejour but Vargas gets in his way somewhat as he attempts an acrobatic volley and the ball flies away.

(148 Mins)

Valdivia is going to enter the fray for Chile.

(146 Mins)

Memphis Depay is poised to come on for the Netherlands in place of Jeremain Lens. The Dynamo Kiev forward has struggled today but the introduction of the 20-year-old Depay should breathe new life into the Dutch attack.

(145 Mins)

Nigel de Jong gives away a foul. The A.C. Milan midfielder is lucky not to have picked up a yellow for persistent fouling yet.

(145 Mins)

Blind is shown the yellow.

(144 Mins)

Robben almost takes Bravo by surprise with his snapshot from the edge of the box but he never really had the space to trouble the goalkeeper. Theres always danger for Chile when Robben gets on the ball though.

(144 Mins)

Arjen Robben controls the ball.

(143 Mins)

Good work from Sanchez on the left takes him around Lens and into the box. Hes rather selfish with the finish however and elects to shoot from an acute angle. Cillessen is well paced to beat the ball away and the danger passes.

(142 Mins)

The first Dutchman in the book is Daley Blind after he slides in on Sanchez.

(141 Mins)

A long ball over the top for Sanchez almost finds the Chilean attacker but Cillessen comes across and just gets a hand to the ball. Sanchez goes down and is convinced he should have had a penalty but the referee is unmoved.

(140 Mins)

Robben and Mena contest an aerial ball.

(139 Mins)

Lens goes down under a challenge from Jara and the Dutch have got a dangerous free-kick. Robben puts the ball and it is headed away as far as Sneijder but his volley from distance is blocked and the ball is played all the way back to Cillessen in the Dutch goal.

(137 Mins)

Lens cuts the ball back to Sniejder but he cant bring it under control and Chile regain possession. Sneijders performance hasnt really picked up here and Opta stats show he completed just two passes in the first 45 minutes. Time for a change?

(134 Mins)

Sanchez hits a shot from a frankly ludicrous position more than 40 yards from goal. Unsurprisingly enough the shot is not on target. That was poor from the Barcelona star, he had space to run into and options both sides from his teammates.

(133 Mins)

Blind wins the ball from Sanchez.

(132 Mins)

Sneijder gets the chance to play in Wijnaldum who tries to return the ball too his teammate. Its just ahead of Sneijder though and Chile clear.

(130 Mins)

Kuyt is playing a little higher up on the left this half with Janmaat on the other side tucked in as the Dutch switch to more of a four at the back. Kuyt needs to stay aware of Islas marauding runs from wing-back though. The Juventus man can be dangerous when not tracked.

(128 Mins)

Sneijder is penalised for handball as he threatens to pounce on a Chilean mistake. The Galatasaraay star has been poor so far in this one and really struggled to exert any kind of influence on proceedings. Louis van Gaal really needs his experienced players like Sneijder to step up if his team are to win today.

(126 Mins)

Chile almost fashion an opportunity down the right through the tricky Sanchez but hes tackled by Blind before he can enter the box. Sanchez thinks he should have had a free-kick but the referee waves play on.

(125 Mins)

Silva hits the deck.

(123 Mins)

And the second-half is very much underway. An early foul on Lens continues the slightly broken style of the first period.

(123 Mins)

Theres going to be a change for the second-half with Jean Beausejour taking the pace of Gutierrez.

(110 Mins)

Sampaolis half-time message for his side should be relatively simple: "Keep doing what youre doing". La Roja have kept the ball well and pressed the Dutch energetically and should make a breakthrough if they can keep it up. He will need to warn his players to be careful when bringing the ball out from the back however as they have almost been caught out a couple of times. He may even turn to Vidal for a little more dynamism in the middle at some stage but with the midfielder one booking away from a suspension, if he can find a way to win without him then that it would be preferable.

(109 Mins)

Meanwhile over in this afternoons other game Spain are leading Australia 1-0 thanks to David Villa. It will almost certainly be Villas last World Cup appearance but at least he is signing out in style.

(107 Mins)

HALF-TIME - The first half ends goalless but it has been an entertaining game here in Sao Paulo. Chile have had more of the ball and probably the better of the chances but with the pace of Robben on the break and Sneijders delivery from dead-ball situations the Dutch are always capable of conjuring a goal from nothing.

(105 Mins)

Another free-kick. Another chance. This time it is the Netherlands who threaten as Sneijders ball in is only half cleared by Chile. The ball comes out to Wijnaldum but his shot is blocked and Kuyt is penalised for trying to win the ball back from the defender.

(104 Mins)

With just a couple of minutes left in the half Chile come close to breaking the deadlock when Diazs free-kick reaches a completely unmarked Gutierrez in the Dutch box. Gutierrez has his back to goal when attempting the header though and he cant direct the ball on target.

(103 Mins)

Lens, who has been quiet this half, gets a chance to stretch his legs but decides to ignore Robben at the end of his run and fires a shot over the bar from an optimistic range.

(102 Mins)

Mena has had plenty of opportunities to get crosses in from the right but his delivery has been poor so far. This time it is fired at Vargas but Vlaar gets there first and pokes the ball clear.

(100 Mins)

Brilliant work from Arjen Robben almost leads to the opener. He picks the ball up on the half-way line and dances through the Chilean defence with characteristically neat footwork and blistering pace. The Bayern Munich man can only send his shot wide of Bravos post however after working a great opportunity and the scores remain level.

(98 Mins)

Nigel de Jong heads the ball past Felipe Gutierrez.

(96 Mins)

Sanchez goes down under the challenge of Dirk Kuyt as the Chilean forward tries to connect with a cross. He is furious and clearly believes a penalty should have bee awarded but there was barely any contact from Kuyt and the right decision s made.

(96 Mins)

Robben whips in a free-kick which Stefan de Vrij connects with but his header is agonisingly wide of the post. Not far away from an opener there.

(94 Mins)

The Dutch have created their best opportunities by pressing Chile high up and regaining possession. They need to press more aggressively here and unsettle Jorge Sampaolis side if they want to win this one.

(93 Mins)

Janmaat wins the ball from the Chilean defence and can cross from the left. His ball in is poor however and he fails to pick out a teammate in the box.

(91 Mins)

Daley Blind slides in on Vargas in the box. It looked like a risky challenge from but he just gets to the ball before Aranguiz the referee waves away the Chilean shouts for a penalty.

(89 Mins)

After a full game against Spain and half an hour against the Dutch it seems a little bizarre that the side to have troubled Chile the most so far is Australia. The Socceroos used the physicality of Tim Cahill to great effect in their opening game. Will we see the introduction of Klaas-Jan Hunterlaar and something similar from van Gaal here today?

(88 Mins)

Silva is shown the yellow.

(88 Mins)

Louis van Gaal watches on.

(87 Mins)

Marcelo Diaz is almost released in the box by a clever ball from Sanchez. The pass is slightly over-hit though and the Netherlands can breathe easily again.

(86 Mins)

The Netherlands have got a good chance here from a free-kick. Sneijder elects to shoot but is unable to trouble Bravo from distance.

(85 Mins)

Francisco Silva picks up the games first booking for a trip on Lens.

(84 Mins)

For the first time the Dutch press high up the pitch and win back possession. It gives Robben a chance to take on the Chilean defence but hes eventually crowded out as he makes his way into the box. Much better that from the Netherlands.

(82 Mins)

Good chance for Gutierrez! The corner eventually comes in and its pulled back to Gutierrez. He cant keep his shot down though and the ball sails harmlessly over Cillessens bar.

(81 Mins)

Diazs free-kick finds its way to Mena on the right and his cross goes behind for a corner. Theres some pushing in the box which delays the set-piece.

(81 Mins)

A sea of red cheers on Chile.

(81 Mins)

Lens clashes with Medel.

(80 Mins)

Louis van Gaal doesnt look too impressed over on the touchline. He is yet to see his team really get the ball down and play with with their few opportunities mainly coming from long balls.

(78 Mins)

A lovely turn in the middle of the park from Sanchez frees him up to run at the Dutch backline. The ball is played to Mena but his cut-back zips across the box without finding any of his onrushing teammates.

(77 Mins)

Lens is down hear after clashing with Gary Medel. It gives both teams the chance to have a drinks break.

(74 Mins)

Its been a scrappy start to this one. Chile are dominating possession but a series of niggly fouls are preventing them from launching any dangerous attacks.

(73 Mins)

The ball goes into the Dutch area from Mena but Vargas cant direct his header on target under pressure from Vlaar and it will be a goal-kick for Chile.

(71 Mins)

Gonzalo Jara is penalised for a foul on Robben who appeared to go down a little too easily there. Robbens free-kick is easily cleared though and Chile recover possession once again.

(70 Mins)

Kuyts flicked header from Cillessens goal-kick lands at the feet of Robben but the Bayern Munich winger cant quite get the ball under control when well placed to run at the Chilean defence.

(69 Mins)

Arjen Robben gets on the ball for the Netherlands.

(66 Mins)

Were yet to really see any kind of attacking intent from the Dutch who are sitting back rather deep in their own half being pressed back by their energetic opponents. Chile have launched a couple of attacks down their right hand side but Kuyt has dealt with them well.

(63 Mins)

It will be interesting to see how Dirk Kuyt performs tonight from his deeper position. As someone who still remembers the day when Rafael Benitez claimed that his new signing for Liverpool would guarantee 20 goals and 20 assists a season it always seems a little bizarre to see Kuyt reinvented as a players more valued for his defensive attributes.

(59 Mins)

Its Chile who get us underway here in sunny Sao Paulo.

(57 Mins)

Teams? Ready. Anthems? Sung. Atmosphere? Electric. Looks like were all ready to go.

(54 Mins)

Netherlands fans prepare for their clash with Chile.

(50 Mins)

Just ten minutes to go until kick-off. How about some pointless trivia to bridge the gap? With Robin van Persie suspended this is the first time the Dutch will not be fielding a Van in an international match since 1996 (221 matches).

(44 Mins)

The Dutch and the Chileans have both made brilliant starts to the tournament. Theyve each cruised to comfortable victories over reigning world champions Spain as well as earning hard-fought wins against group minnows Australia. But who will come out on top today as they vie for top spot?

(38 Mins)

Chile meanwhile will be without the talismanic Arturo Vidal who has been struggling with a knee problem since before the tournament. Fortunately for both teams they are already guaranteed qualification to the next round, but this match will determine who finishes top. The Netherlands better goal difference means a draw will be enough to take them through as group winners and prevent a likely clash with hosts Brazil in the next round.

(33 Mins)

Both teams will be lining up in a similar formation with three centre-backs and wing-backs. Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal has selected Fenerbahce forward Dirk Kuyt to play left wing-back while Jeremain Lens will partner Arjen Robben in attack in place of the suspended Robin van Persie.

(32 Mins)

Chile (5-3-2): Bravo; Silva, Medel, Jara, Isla, Mena; Gutierrez, Diaz, Aranguiz; Vargas, Sanchez.

(29 Mins)

Netherlands (5-3-2): Cillessen; Janmaat, De Vrijj, Vlaar, Blind, Kuyt; Wijnaldum, Sneijder, De Jong; Robben, Lens.

(27 Mins)

The teams are in...
