  • It's Australia 2 Holland 3 at the final whistle. The Aussies came from 1-0 down to go 2-1 up - but the Dutch just had too much firepower and scored three goals through Robben, van Persie and Depay. Robben's was a fine solo effort - but Tim Cahill scored the goal of the goal with a sublime left-footed volley.

  • We've got three minutes of added time.

  • Australia waste a free-kick as it's headed clear by the Dutch in their 18-yard box. They're running out of steam now.

  • Van Persie leaves the pitch and hands the armband to Robben, with Jeremain Lens coming on for him.

  • Australia are battling hard but concede a free-kick in the Dutch half to lose some attacking momentum they were building.

  • It's fair to say the Dutch are now dictating terms and trying to take the sting out of the game.

  • The Aussies in the crowd are still full of beans - but the Aussies on the pitch are starting to tire and leave space for the Dutch to exploit.

  • Holland make a change now, sending on Georginio Wijnaldum for Jonathan de Guzman.

  • Leckie runs into Janmaat and goes down theatrically in the box - but no penalty is given this time.

  • Adam Taggart comes on for Tommy Oar, who has impressed for Australia.

  • Robben takes a low free-kick which gets past the wall but is scooped up by Ryan, who then does brilliantly to deny de Jong with a close-range save.

  • Oar brings down the impressive Robben for a Dutch free-kick in a dangerous position about 25 yards from goal.

  • Australia send on Ben Halloran for Tim Cahill.

  • Just before Holland scored, Australia spurned a great chance when Leckie chested a cross from Oar towards goal, only to steer it straight to Cillessen.

  • 3-2 to HOLLAND! Memphis Depay (68). The substitute has an ambitious crack at goal from 25 yards and the ball skids past a diving Ryan, who really should have done better.

  • Sneijder tries to orchestrate a counter-attack but a return pass to him is slightly overhit and goes out for a goal-kick.

  • Van Persie is lucky to be staying on the pitch after escaping a second caution.

  • Janmaat fouls Oar for an Australia free-kick, which is cleared by Ron Vlaar, who has been a rock at the back for the Dutch.

  • 2-2 HOLLAND - Robin van Persie (58). Wow, what a hit from the Manchester United hitman, who thumps a fierce left-footed shot into the roof of the net from about 12 yards.

  • Holland are under the cosh at present as Australia win a corner, which is cleared comfortably. The Dutch need to regain their composure though.
