Share post:

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) — The Netherlands turned on the style in the second half and reached its third World Cup final with a 3-2 victory over Uruguay.
Wesley Sneijder scored his fifth goal in South Africa and Giovanni van Bronckhorst added one of the goals of the tournament as the Dutch reached their first World Cup final in 32 years.
Van Bronckhorst scored with a blistering shot in the 18th minute, but Diego Forlan equalized in the 41st with his fourth goal of the tournament.
Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk later replaced Demy de Zeeuw with Rafael van der Vaart and the attacking move paid off as Sneijder and Arjen Robben scored in the second half.
Maximiliano Pereira scored for Uruguay in the 90th.
