85' – Isla tries a 35-yard shot that falls to Pinilla in a great position, but he is flagged offside.

HT: Netherlands 0-0 Chile

45' – Lens' first-time shot from the edge of the area is blocked by a crowd of players as the half draws to a close.

44' – Gutierrez comes close with a glancing header from Diaz's inswinging free-kick!

40' – Robben picks up the ball in his own half and goes on a mesmerising solo run, beats Medel on the edge of the area and then shoots just wide of the right-hand upright! Great stuff!

35' – De Vrij comes within inches of the far post with a flying header via Robben's free-kick from the right!

33' – Robben breaks through the middle for the Dutch but fails to play in De Jong to his right who was making a good run.

26' – Sneijder's direct free-kick from 30 yards is easily gathered by Bravo.

25' – YELLOW CARD for Silva for a professional foul.

23' – Cleverly worked corner-kick by Chile as the ball is rolled towards the penalty spot, but Gutierrez fires over first time with his left foot.

20' – Not much goalmouth action to report on as the teams struggle to put any cohesive attacking moves together.

5' – The match is underway in the heat of Sao Paulo as both sides struggle to stamp any early authority on proceedings.

Robin van Persie is suspended for the Dutch after picking up two yellow cards as Louis van Gaal makes one or two other personnel changes as well.

It's as you were for Chile as they look to end above Netherlands in the group and avoid a possible Last 16 clash against host nation Brazil.
