Van Gaal’s men have maintained their perfect start at the World Cup in Brazil after coming from behind and edging Australia 3-2 in a dramatic encounter in Porto Alegre.
Arjen Robben scored and opener for Oranje, while the MLS striker Tim Cahill only a minute later with a superb volley equalised score. Socceroos to a 2-1 lead brought Jedinak from a penalty shot, but it wasnt enough to hold off the European side, as Manchester United striker Robin van Persie first scored for 2-2 in the 58th minute, while Memphis Depay 10 minutes later scores for Oranje to complete the comeback and to tighten grip on the first with six points. Australia with a defeat to Netherlands practically are eliminated from the World Cup in Brazil.
