Kick-off 1.00pm local (5.00pm BST) Man of the Match: Arjen Robben (Netherlands) Assistant referees: Rédouane Achik (Morocco) Abdelhak Etchiali (Algeria) Fourth official: Bakary Gassama (Gambia) Fifth official: Evarist Menkouande (Cameroon) The two teams had met in three previous matches, all in friendlies, most recently in 2009. The Netherlands took the lead after Arjen Robben collected a Daley Blind headed pass at the halfway line, burst into the penalty area and scored with a low shot to the goalkeepers left. Soon after the restart, Australia equalised through Tim Cahill's left-foot volley into the goal from the underside of the bar from Ryan McGowan's cross. Australia took the lead in the second half with Mile Jedinak's penalty, awarded for a handball by Daryl Janmaat, but Robin van Persie equalised after he received substitute Memphis Depay's pass and scored. Ten minutes later, Memphis Depay received a pass from Jonathan de Guzmán and his long range effort beat Australia goalkeeper Mathew Ryan. With his goal Depay became the youngest ever Dutch scorer in the World Cup at the age of 20.
