    Time:90'
    • Netherlands
    • Hungary
    • 90' It's over in Holland. A massive scare for the Dutch but a late flurry sees them win 5-3 and maintain their 100% record atop the group. What a game though!
    • 87' Dzsudzsak with a long-range effort but wide.
    • 83' Across the face of goal from Rudolf! Gera and co were sliding in but beyond them! Well. The fans have certainly had their money's worth tonight.
    • 81' KUYT WITH AN OUTRAGEOUS LOB AND IN! What a goal from 30 yards on the right! But his reaction is one of mild embarassment so I can only assume he didn't mean it. A very bad cross. 5-3. I think. I'm losing count. Poor Hungary.
    • 78' GOOOOOOOAL! GOAL! GOL! Kuyt! Another super goal as he flies in with a far-post volley after a quite brilliant cross from Afellay, who - on the showing of the last two games - is one of the best players I've seen in the last few years. 4-3!
    • 76' Van der Viel just wide! Kuyt played him in and the fizzing low cross-shot was subject of an unsuccessful lunge from Van der Vaart.
    • 75' HUNGARY ARE LEVEL! Unbelievable and it's Gera! He springs the offside trap and smashes a super finish into the top left! 3-3! Madness!!!
    • 72' GOAL HOLLAND! Van Nistelrooy drills home Kuyt's low cross in typical fashion, but what a run and crossfield pass from Afellay, brilliant from the Barcelona winger.
    • 63' Well wide from Gera as it opened up for the volley after more good play from exciting winger Dzsudzsak down the left.
    • 61' HOLLAND LEVEL! Sneijder! He rolls it into the net after an unfortunate ricochet off defender Vadocz plays him in. What a game this is!
    • 60' Juhasz is booked for a chopping foul on the right. Free-kick but poor from Sneijder, into the wall.
    • 58' Almost another for the visitors, a wonderful sweeping move that sees Dzeudszak slide in and almost prod the finish past Vorm, who saces again. Lovely passes.
    • 56' Whatever the gaffer said at half-time should be bottled and sold. Another super move sees the impressive Rudolf smack a low drive that Vorm does well to hold.
    • 50' IT'S 2-1 TO HUNGARY! What a turnaround! Gera with the strike and this could be a shock! Van Nistelrooy is on for the Dutch by the way, Van Persie made way. A knock maybe?
    • 47' Hungary score! Great start to the second half and you have to say they have deserved it! It's Rudolf with the finish after his corner wasn't cleared!
    • 45' Hungary win a corner at the end of the half, Dzsudszak with the run... Half-time, the Dutch lead but Hungary feel they should be level after they had a goal chalked off.
    • 40' Gera has a pop after a good spell for Hungary but the Fulham midfielder sends it well over. Now Rudolf has a strike after a sweeping move but straight at Vorm.
    • 34' A cracking counter from Holland but Kuyt cuts back a floated ball that put him free on the right when he should have volleyed. Hungary clear.
    • 30' Kuyt could have reached that ball wide to him and he knows it, stopping too soon anticipating a ball to feet.
    • 24' Lazar kicks Afellay, who was brilliant in the first game and got a right kicking then too. Yellow.
    • 19' Van der Wiel fouls Dzsudzsak after a good spell of Hungary pressure. Rudolf takes quickly and it's in! But the ref disallows it! Hungary are furious!
    • 12' GOAL VAN PERSIE! Another flyer for the Dutch as he drills a low finish into the bottom left after Heitinga flicks on a corner from Sneijder!
    • 1' First half underway in the Netherlands.
    • - The Dutch have the momentum after their 4-0 spanking of the not-so-magnificent Magyars in the reverse fixture at the weekend - no changes either so they're going for it!
