Brasil Heading Home

Wesley Sneijder header and Filipe Melo own goal bring the Dutch into semi-final.
But they had to come from behind to avenge their heartbreaking defeats of 1994 and 1998 and book their place in the semi-finals.Robinho, who had already had an effort ruled out for offside, fired the Brazilians ahead with just ten minutes gone, and the Dutch struggled to cope during the opening 45 minutes.But Felipe Melo's 53rd-minute own goal gave them fresh impetus and Sneijder won it 22 minutes from time as Melo was dismissed for stamping on Arjen Robben.
