Argentina vs. Netherlands goes to penalties: Live updates

Final: Argentina advance to World Cup Final on PKs

Argentina and the Netherlands require penalties to determine who reaches the World Cup final, and they've been playing for them for quite some time. They finished 120 minutes of soccer tied 0-0, and there were very few scoring chances on both ends.

During their last game, against Costa Rica, the Netherlands made a tactical goalkeeper switch at the end of extra time. Regular keeper Jasper Cillesen has never saved a penalty, so they put Tim Krul into the game. But the Oranje made all three of their substitutions early, so they're not going to be able to make that switch again.

As a reminder, penalties are best of five, and completed when one team is no longer mathematically able to beat the other in five rounds of penalties. If the teams are tied after five rounds, they go to sudden death, where each team takes a penalty until one team scores and the other misses in the same round.
