Wesley Sneijder (pictured) scored twice, though the first was given as an own-goal, as Holland upended Brazil 2-1 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth to advance to the semi-finals of the World Cup. Brazil took an early lead when Robinho scored from a wonderful Felipe Melo pass. But it was Melo who turned the tide of the match away from the Brazilians. His tiny nod deflected Sneijder’s cross on 53 minutes into his own net, leveling the score. After Sneijder headed in Holland’s second, Melo picked up a straight red card for his stamp on Arjen Robben. Dropping to ten men was enough to undo this Brazil side as they were unable to find an equalizer over the final twenty minutes. The Dutch return to the semi-finals for the second time in their past three World Cups and will face either Uruguay or Ghana, depending on how that match goes later today.
