121nedAfter a surprising 5-1 victory over Spain, and a hard fought 2-3 victory over Australia, the Netherlands will advance to the round of 16 in the 2014 World Cup. It wasn’t until Chile gave Spain it’s second defeat that it was guaranteed the Netherlands and Chile would advance from Group B.

The question now is who will they play in the first knockout stage? If Netherlands top the group, assuming Brazil tops Group A with Mexico advancing behind them, the Oranje would likely face Mexico or Croatia. However, if Chile outdo the Dutch on Monday, the Netherlands could face Brazil, a team favored to win the whole competition on June 29.

Hats off to Oranje for two electrifying victories so far, we can’t wait to see what’s next!

Hup Holland Hup

I'm a digital/social marketer out of Chicago. I grew up loving Dutch football - total football is the only way to play. I support PSV in the Eredivisie, and whatever team has the most Dutch guys on it in any other league. Hup Holland Hup!
