The Netherlands have beaten Australia 3-2 in their World Cup group B match which featured stunning goals and non-stop action as the 2010 runners-up made it two wins out of two following their opening demolition of Spain.
Dutch winger Arjen Robben opened the scoring in the 20th minute when he ran from the halfway line before tucking the ball beyond Mat Ryan for this third goal of the tournament.
Tim Cahill replied immediately, however, by crashing a 20-metre volley into the roof of the net for what will be a strong contender for goal of the tournament.
Australia took a shock 2-1 lead with a 54th-minute Mile Jedinak penalty after Oliver Bozanic hammered the ball straight at Daryl Janmaat's arm but Robin van Persie levelled with his sharply-taken third goal of the tournament four minutes later.
Substitute Memphis Depay won it for the Dutch after 68 minutes when his low long-range shot somehow escaped the diving Ryan and went just inside a post.
Netherlands have six points, Chile, who later thrillingly elminated Spain 2-0, have six too, with Australia and the Cup holders on zero.
