The game may have started out as a nail-biter, but the Netherlands quickly secured their lead in the 71st minute, when Sneijder and Robben both scored two rapid goals. The Netherlands scored first in the 18th minute, with a 35-yard, left-footed shot by Giovanni van Bronckhorst. Uruguay tied the Dutch in the 40th minute of the World Cup semifinals with a 20-yard goal by Diego Forlan. And though Uruguay squeezed in one additional goal during stoppage time, it was too little too late. The Dutch, high off their victory against powerhouse Brazil, are hoping to win their first World Cup. Uruguay won the first-ever tournament in 1930, but the South American country has not captured the title since 1950.
