Dutch dodge Brazil after beating Chile

Netherlands'' fans cheer prior to the Group B football match between Netherlands and Chile at the Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo.

Goals by substitutes Leroy Fer and Memphis Depay gave the Netherlands a 2-0 victory over Chile today that put them top of World Cup Group B and likely to avoid a second-round meeting with Brazil.

Both teams were already assured of progress and the game lacked intensity until Fer produced a prodigious leap to head home Daryl Janmaat's angled cross two minutes after coming on.

Depay then ran on to a telling Arjen Robben pass to complete the win in stoppage-time, The Netherlands, beaten finalists in 2010, will now play Mexico, while Chile, who finished second on six, will play Group A winners Brazil.

Spain, who beat Australia 3-0 today, finished third on three points with the Australians on zero.
