World Cup 2014: Netherlands Defeats Chile, 2-0, to Win Group B

Posted by Shanelle Weir on June 23, 2014

Both the Netherlands and Chile entered the final match of group play knowing they were through to the knockout stage, but the Dutch are moving on as the champions of Group B thanks to 2-0 victory.

The Chileans had their chances, controlling much of the possession and play early in the first half, but after the 35th minute it felt very much like the Netherlands' game.

The first goal didn't come until the 76th minute, on a header by Leroy Fer. The Dutch offered a final exclamation point in stoppage time, when Arjen Robben raced up the left side and sent a cross to Memphis Depay.

The Dutch will get the second place finishers of Group A in the knockout round. Chile will likely get Brazil, unless Cameroon can give them trouble later today.
