Sneidjer takes Oranje to next round

Sneidjer celebrates after scoring the opener

Inter Milan and Holland playmaker, Wesley Sneidjer scored the only goal in this FIFA World Cup 2010 South Africa Group E match in Durban. Both teams won their opening matches and each wanted to keep a clean record and progress  to the 2nd round.

The first half was nothing less than a cat and mouse affair as both sides were cautious in their approach. After the break, Sneidjer hit a shot from outside the box which moved and confused the Japanese goalkeeper. After the goal, the Japanese started to come out of their shell and played more open.

Their oldest player, Shunsuke Nakamura was also thrown in by Japanese coach, Okada in search of an equaliser. The Japanese approach play was slick and quick but they have no one to finish the good work up to the penalty box.

The Oranje continue their march but the Japanese team will need to win their final match against Denmark in order to progress.
