24th June 2010, Comments 0 comments


Holland reaffirmed their status as one of the World Cup favourites by beating Cameroon 2-1, their third win in a row.

Bert van Marwijk's team only needed a point to secure top spot in Group E  but took all three with goals from Robin van Persie and substitute Klaas-Jan Huntelaar cancelling out a penalty by Samuel Eto'o.

They now play Group F runners-up Slovakia, who beat Italy 3-2 earlier in the day.

Japan wrote history with a 3-1 win over Denmark that sends them into the last 16 of a World Cup for the first time on foreign soil.

Reigning champions Italy crashed out of  the World Cup after their 3-2 loss to Slovakia.

Paraguay also reached the last 16 after drawing 0-0 with New  Zealand.
