Holland

Jasper Cillessen Ajax stopper enjoyed quiet time of things as he was rarely tested. 5/10

Daryl Janmaat Showed good awareness to cut out Chile’s attempts at attacking down left-hand side. Provided perfect cross for first goal. 7

Stefan De Vrij Wasted good chance to opening scoring with diving header. Didn’t put a foot wrong. 6

Ron Vlaar Aston Villa skipper dealt well with barrage of crosses that came his way. 6

Daley Blind Struggled to cope with Sanchez. Committed number of unnecessary fouls. 4

Georginio Wijnaldum Always on the periphery of proceedings as Louis van Gaal’s side preferred a direct approach. 4

Nigel De Jong Delivered typically tenacious display. Lucky not to be booked for persistent fouling. 6

Wesley Sneijder Got into dangerous positions but final ball was often lacking. 5

Dirk Kuyt Displayed incredible work rate as he was asked to adopt more defensive role to counter threat of wide players. Making his first competitive start in 986 days (11 Oct 2011 vs. Sweden). 6

Jeremain Lens Failed to deal with physical presence of opponent’s defensive line in ineffectual 69-minute stint. 3

Arjen Robben (man of the match) Should have scored spectacular opener with surging run. Looked dangerous when given room to dribble with ball. Has been involved in 13 goals (8 goals, 5 assists) in last 9 games for national team. 7

Substitutes

Memphis Depay Another impressive cameo from bench. Sealed victory with side-footed finish in added time at end of game. 6

Leroy Fer Norwich midfielder made instant impact after being brought on. Clinically dispatched header just 90 seconds after introduction. Fastest substitute to score a World Cup goal since Marcin Zewlakow in 2002. 6

Terence Kongolo N/A

Chile

Claudio Bravo Barcelona-bound goalkeeper was the busier of the two stoppers. Reacted sharply to keep out snapshots from Robben and Depay. No chance with goals. 6

Mauricio Isla Asked to operate in more defensive role but looked solid. 6

Gary Medel Tenacious display from Cardiff City man. Key component of his side’s attempt to assert authority via possession play. 7

Francisco Silva All-action performance from centre-back. Sacrificed in attempt to secure victory. 6

Gonzalo Jara Former West Brom defender looked assured as part of central defensive trio. 6

Eugenio Mena Tireless showing from Santos full-back as he offered useful outlet. 7

Marcelo Diaz Useful presence in front of defensive midfield role in tactical affair. 5

Charles Aranguiz Always looked to get his team into advanced positions but passes were often intercepted. 5

Felipe Gutierrez Allowed space from pair of set-piece deliveries and should have notched a goal. Substituted at half-time. 5

Eduardo Vargas Made no impact on the game. Disappointing display. 4

Alexis Sanchez Consistently caused problems for Dutch with strong, pacey performance. 7

Substitutes

Jean Beausejour Wigan winger injected pace but was controlled well by Janmaat. 5

Jorge Valdivia Failed to make an impact. 4
