Netherlands 0-0 Costa Rica AET (Pens 4-3): Dutch through to semis after Krul gamble pays off

Netherlands vs Costa Rica 4-3 Highlights all goals penalty Video
Netherlands are through to the World Cup semi-finals after a 4-3 win on penalties over Costa Rica, following a goalless draw after 120 minutes.

Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul was brought on just before the shoot-out in a bold move from Louis van Gaal – which ultimately proved successful.

Costa Rica kept Netherlands quiet throughout the game with a strong defensive performance, with Keylor Navas again shining in goal.Netherlands vs Costa Rica (2)

Wesley Sneijder came close in the second half with a free-kick hitting the post, before Robin van Persie spurned a glorious chance from the Galatasaray man’s cross.

Netherlands then came agonisingly close in time added on but were thwarted by a Costa Rica goal-line clearance.

And penalties followed after extra-time could not separate the two sides.
