The Dutch are back in it! They've had their fair share of chances in the second half, but until Robin van Persie picked up the ball in the 73rd minute, they'd yet to beat Manuel Neuer, and Germany looked as though they'd be cruising to victory. No longer.
The Arsenal forward picked up a Wesley Sneijder pass 35 yards from goal, turned the usually imperious Mats Hummels without skipping a beat and advanced towards Neuer's goal. Bayern Munich centre half Holger Badstuber moved in to intercept, forcing van Persie to shift the ball to his usually weaker right foot, which turned out to be a mistake. Van Persue blasted the ball straight through Badstuber's legs, the shot hit so hard that Neuer couldn't get down to his left in time to stop the shot. It's now 2-1 with ten minutes to go, so the Netherlands have a lifeline.
