Holland beat Cameroon
The Netherlands reaffirmed their status as one of the World Cup
favourites on Thursday by beating Cameroon 2-1 to set up a knockout
round clash with Slovakia.
Bert van Marwijk’s team only needed a point to secure top spot in
Group E but took all three with goals from Robin van Persie and
substitute Klaas-Jan Huntelaar cancelling out a Samuel Eto’o penalty.
They now play Group F runners-up Slovakia, who beat defending
champions Italy 3-2 earlier in the day.
The Dutch once again proved they are one of the form sides in South
Africa with a third win in a row, joining Argentina as the only teams
with a 100 percent record so far.
“We leave the World Cup with lots of regrets,” said Cameroon’s French
coach Paul Le Guen.
