FIFA World Cup 2014: Australia vs Netherlands 20th Match in Pictures

The Netherlands all but secured their place in the last 16 of the World Cup as they came from behind to beat Australia 3-2 in Porto Alegre on Wednesday.

Arjen Robben had fired the Dutch into an early lead, but a stunning volleyed equaliser from Tim Cahill and Mile Jedinak's penalty early in the second-half had put Autralia on course for their most famous ever victory at a World Cup.

Their joy was short-lived, though, as Robin Van Persie levelled before Maty Ryan let Memphis Depay's long-range effort creep into the bottom corner to make it two wins from two games for the Dutch in Group B.
