The Dutch came out of another masterful performance, this time beating Australia, 3-2, in a sensational World Cup Group B match.

Following their opening match demolition of Spain, Dutch winger Arjen Robben opened the scoring in the 20th minute for his third goal of the tournament.

But Tim Cahill replied immediately, crashing a 20-meter volley into the net.

Australia took a shock 2-1 lead in the 54th minute due to a penalty, but Robin Van Persie leveled the game four minutes later.

It was substitute Memphis Depay who won it for Netherlands after 68 minutes, to register six points for the Dutchmen in Group B. -- Mornings @ ANC, June 19, 2014.
