Oranje, Seleção book meeting in style

Brazil and the Netherlands lived up to their status as the day’s favourites by easing to respective wins over Chile and Slovakia. The duo will now meet in an intriguing quarter-final at Nelson Mandela Bay/Port Elizabeth on Friday.

That encounter will be the third time in the last five FIFA World Cups™ that the two sides have met in the knockout phase. The Brazilians emerged victorious on the two previous occasions, winning 3-2 in the last eight at USA 1994 and 4-2 on penalties in the semi-finals of France 1998.

The story is too old to be commented.
