Dutch stars Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben inspired Holland to a stunning, unthinkable 5-1 win over defending champions Spain in a thrilling encounter that will go down in World Cup history.
The Dutch avenged their defeat by the same opponents in the 2010 final in outrageous style, with four unanswered goals in an irresistible second half display in Salvador.
Van Persie and Robben scored two apiece, with each man's first a minor classic in its own right.
Defender Stefan de Vrij scored his side's third.
Vincent Del Bosque's side, who also lost their opener against Switzerland four years ago, had actually taken the lead through Xabi Alonso's disputed penalty, a lead they held until Van Persie's instinctive flying header levelled matters just before the break.
Most laughed and some were scared away when they came face to face unexpectedly with a Uruk-Hai orc while shopping in Holland.Read the full story ›

One agent was found drunk and passed out in the hallway of a hotel, the Washington Post reported.
The report added that the agents were on the Counter Assault Team, which defends the president if he comes under attack.
Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said the three were placed on administrative leave for "disciplinary reasons" but that Obama's security had not been compromised.

Prince John Friso only ever regained "minimal conciousness" before he died, according to the Royal House.
The Prince, 44, was skiing in Lech, Austria in February 2012 when he was buried in an avalanche.
He was initially treated in a London hospital before being brought back to the Netherlands last month.
The Prince was the younger brother of the new King of the Netherlands Willem-Alexander.
The Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the news was "profoundly sad".
Dutch Prince Johan Friso, who went into a coma following a ski accident in February last year, has died.
In a statement, the government said:
"Prince Friso died from complications that arose as a consequence of the brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation following his skiing accident."
