World Cup 2010: Netherlands vs. Japan Live Stream [UPDATED]
The Netherlands (Holland) takes on Japan in a Group E action and both sides are hoping of securing a berth in the knockout stages of the tournament. These two could move closer to qualification, as a win in Durban would put them top of the group on six points.
Takeshi Okada’s side opened their 2010 FIFA World Cup campaign with a 1-0 victory over Cameroon on Monday, while the Netherlands earned a 2-0 win over Denmark later that day. These two teams are meeting for the second time in just 10 months, having squared off in a friendly last September. The Dutch were frustrated by the Samurai Blue for over an hour before beating them 3-0, thanks to goals from Robin van Persie, Wesley Sneijder and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Coach Bert van Marwijk is expected to stick with the same line-up that faced the Olsen Gang, and if the the Oranje can keep Keisuke Honda contained, I think they could win without any difficulty.
The match kicks-off at 13:30 CET (7:30 a.m. ET).
UPDATE: Wesley Sneijder’s 53rd-minute strike handed the Netherlands a 1-0 win over Japan—their second straight World Cup win.
