June 16, 2014

Group A: Mexico vs. Cameroon

After having their first two goals disallowed, Mexico finally got one that counted in the second half against Cameroon. El Tri  then held on for the 1-0 victory.

Group B: Spain vs. Netherlands

The Netherlands got their revenge on Spain in this rematch of the 2010 World Cup final. While Spain struck first on a penalty, the Dutch responded with five unanswered goals to take the 5-1 victory. Netherlands’ first goal, an astounding diving header by Robin Van Persie, might be the best goal anyone will see all tournament.

Group B: Chile vs. Australia

Chile came out with two quick goals in the first half, but then the Chileans found themselves having to hang on against the lowest ranked team in the World Cup. Australia got one goal back, and missed a few chances to equalize before Chile broke through again late to finish off the Socceroos, 3-1.
