    Sub Krul wins shoot-out for Dutch

    Tim Krul emerged as the unlikeliest of heroes as the Netherlands edged Costa Rica on penalties to book a FIFA World Cup™ semi-final against Argentina. The Newcastle United goalkeeper spent 120 goalless minutes on the bench, before Louis van Gaal brought him on in the nick of time for a penalty shoo-tout. Krul responded by saving two spot-kicks to send the Oranje to Sao Paulo.

    The match began with Arjen Robben seeing lots of the ball – and looking threatening every time it arrived at his feet. Costa Rica nevertheless did a solid job of halting his electric darts, but when the 30-year-old drew two opponents towards him and spread play to Dirk Kuyt, the Dutch did create a big chance. Kuyt slipped it to Memphis Depay, who faked the shot and played a deceptive reverse pass to Robin van Persie. The Manchester United striker took and touch and unleshed a firm shot from inside the area, but Keylor Navas was equal to it.

    Van Persie turned creator just before the half-hour, but Navas did brilliantly to block a firm Depay strike with his leg. Navas then made a fine one-handed save to push a Wesley Sneijder free-kick, behind, before the Costa Rica No1 was alert to race from his line and smother the ball at the feet of Robin van Persie to ensure the sides went in at the break at deadlock.

    Soon after the restart, from a set-piece, Robben faked a cross into the box but squared the ball for Sneijder, who had peeled to the edge of the box. Bryan Ruiz had alertly tracked the Oranje No10, however, and under pressure he failed to keep his shot down.

    Costa Rica has a promising spell thereafter, but they failed to trouble Netherlands goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, with Christian Bolanos firing a free-kick well over and Giancarlo Gonzalez heading wide.

    The Dutch were agonisingly close to going ahead on 82 minutes, with Sneijder’s magnificently curled free-kick coming back off the post. And they missed a gilt-edge chance six minutes later. Sneijder’s inswinging cross from the left found the unmarked Van Persie just yards out, but he somehow failed to connect with the ball.

    Then, in injury time, Daley Blind cut the ball across goal. Somehow the ball evaded multiple players in a crammed penalty-area and found Van Persie at the back post. The Netherlands’ all-time leading marksman shot from point-blank range, but Yeltsin Tejeda deflected it up and on to the crossbar. Navas, his post and his crossbar had seen Los Ticos into extra-time. Ron Vlaar had the first opportunity in it, his downward header forcing Navas into a smart save following a corner.

    Suddenly, Costa Rica, who had barely threatened the Netherlands’ goal all evening, had two great chances in quick succession. First, Marco Urena masterfully skipped past two challenges only for Stefan de Vrij to made a last-ditch tackle. Then Urena found himself with time and space inside the Dutch area. The Kuban Krasnodar striker shot powerfully, but Cillessen made a brilliant block. The crossbar denied another magnificent Sniejder strike at the death, but Van Gaal was just able to get Krul on in time for penalties. The big keeper vindicated that substitution by denying Ruiz and Urena and keeping the Dutch dream alive.

    Netherlands-Costa Rica: Quotes

    Louis van Gaal, Netherlands coach
    In terms of team spirit and togetherness, this is the best group I've worked with. I thought we had more quality than Costa Rica and deserved to win. I don’t know how much ball possession we had, how many times we hit the woodwork and how many chances we had – in the end it’s all about scoring. We have practiced pens, I believe when you're used to a certain way of shooting you'll be more comfortable taking that shot. We told Tim Krul that he would be the best goalkeeper for the penalties as he’s bigger; we didn't tell Cillessen, as we didn't want to ruin his preparation and concentration. There is no question about who will start next game, it will be Cillessen. But we felt Krul was the better choice here – and he proved that. He guessed the correct way for every penalty.

    Jorge Luis Pinto, Costa Rica coach
    We’re hurt but we’re happy. When we came here many people didn’t believe in us, but during this World Cup we’ve done many beautiful things. Even though we have to leave the tournament we haven’t been beaten, even by the super-powers we came up against. This evening I thought we matched the Dutch and although we can improve on certain things, we’re making great progress. We’ve shown that we can organise ourselves, that we have good tactics and we can play football. We have left a positive and dignified impression of Costa Rican football. I’m proud of the players and so is the country. They’ve given everything they have.

    Keylor Navas, Costa Rica goalkeeper and Budweiser Man of the Match
    This World Cup has been a great experience and we're leaving with our heads held high. Everyone did a good job. We left everything on the pitch. Nobody likes to lose and it's hard. We didn't lose any game - a penalty shoot-out isn't a defeat.
