Maxico-Dutch tough match tonight

DHAKA: The third match of the knock out round of world cup-2014 will be held between Netherlands and Maxico at 10:00pm Sunday in Fortaleza.

Two sides who have stood out in the world cup so far meet in the round of 16 after progressing through their groups.    

Netherlands won all their matches to top a tricky-looking Group B, thrashing Spain in their opening match before battling past Australia in a five-goal thriller. Louis van Gaal's men finished off their group with another impressive victory, this time over Chile.

Mexico, like Netherlands, also had a tough group. Miguel Herrera, who has been an entertaining watch on the sidelines, orchestrated three solid results in Group A, with El Tri beating Cameroon before drawing with hosts Brazil and then beating Croatia to qualify.

Despite a tough qualifying campaign to get to Brazil, the Mexicans have certainly made the most of their time at the finals. The LVH SuperBook prices them at +255 to win, sportingnews.com.
