Penalty win a dream come true – Krul

Goal - The goalkeeper was brought on late in extra-time against Costa Rica and saved two spot-kicks, helping Netherlands reach the World Cup semi-final.

The story is too old to be commented.

NL really let me down today, it should not have gone into Penalties.

They have to definitely up their game if they hope to win from Argentina.

Van Persie especially made many mistakes. But to be honest, I don't think it was entirely the fault of the Dutch team. Costa Rica was playing extremely defensively in this match, most of the time with all 10 players set up to defend against the Dutch. It's very hard to penetrate a wall of players like that.

I think Costa Rica aimed for a Penalty Shootout from the start.
