Herrera takes a crack on goal.
Carlos Salcido up against Wesley Sneijder – key battle today. Game could be won and lost by who gets the better of the other.
Héctor Herrera looks confident already, dribbling at ease in the heat as Mexico force another shooting chance, which is swung wide.
Dutch may not be happy when one goes in. Mexico can make those. GIve them time to figure out the range and they will.
A slow start for the Oranje then, but Louis van Gaal will have a plan, I'm sure of it.
Almost a chance for Mexico as Jasper Cillessen comes racing out of goal and miscues a clearance, but fortunately it bounces to a teammate.
Aw thanks! Yeah, Goal.com was a while ago. I first wrote for ESPN.com back in 2005, though, so it's like I've come home.
Arjen Robben is fouled on the left wing and this could be the first chance for Netherlands...
Cutie Kuyt to take the FK - Mexico clear it.
SUB: An early blow for the Dutch as Nigel de Jong is forced to come off for Bruno Martins Indi.
It seemed muscular for De Jong - I can't remember a heavy tackle, but that is a huge blow for the Netherlands, especially in this heat.
De Jon didn't last ten minutes in the heat. Mexico chances looking better already.
