Its a shame that the England couldn't have shown a little of the "True Grit" that Holland did in beating Brazil - Outstanding result

Great to see the Dutch go through...In the past they've played beautiful football but never had luck on their side...they could now go all the way... As much as I enjoyed the Netherlands victory I do feel a little sorry for Brazil....they always try to play great football and are everybodies favourite...

I've always supported the Netherlands and to watch the game and support them was my instinct. I am sure Holland will win the world cup after beating "the all time greats".NOW the Netherlands are favourites to win the world cup! C'mon Oranje!!

Why blame Julio Cesar for the first goal? He called out to the defender, and he didn't move. It was a miscommunication between goalie and defender, and the defender sent the ball into the net. The goalie could have done better, but it was mainly the defender's fault IMO for not listening.

so pleased the Dutch have knocked out the favorites. For too long Brazil have had this idea that they are the invincibles and their uglier side was on show today. I sincerely hope the other set of fraudulents follow them, come on Germany.

Wow, what a game! The coincidental equalizer was crucial and totally undermined the Brazilian game, while Holland gained hope. It is a pity that the better side lost, but respect to Holland, who will most probably be runners up in this world cup. Terrible diving by the Dutch (most importantly by Robben) and a stupid foul by Felipe Melo.
