90' +1 Afellay sends a cross in from deep on the right wing, but it hits a Portuguese head and loops in to the arms of Rui Patricio.
90' The Dutch are still giving it a go, although 3 goals seems unlikely now, but another attack is broken down and the ball sent up to Cristiano Ronaldo who shoots from outside the area and hits the post.
88' The Dutch mount an attack, with Robben playing a neat one-two in to the middle and sliding the ball through for Van Persie to shoot, but the Arsenal striker hits it badly wide.
87' Rolando enters the game and replaces Nani.
SUBSTITUTION: Nani off, Rolando on.
85' Nani fires another effort off target. This time he opts for power, but sends the ball way over the top left corner.
