Jonathan de Guzman kept his place in the Holland side as they beat Australia 3-2 in a thrilling match.

Cahill equalised for Australia with a stunning volley within a minute of Robben’s 20th minute opener.

Jedinak netted from the penalty spot early in the second half to give Australia a surprise lead, but Manchester United striker Robin van Persie quickly put the scores level again 4 minutes later.

Substitute Depay then scored the winner to guarantee Holland a place in the last 16 of the competition, with Chile also guaranteeing a place in the next round with a 2-0 win against cup holders Spain.

de Guzman played 78 minutes of the match before being replaced by Wijnaldum.

Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony will also be hoping to keep his first team place on Thursday night when Ivory Coast face Colombia in their Group C match. In his opening game, Bony headed home an equaliser in their 2-1 win against Japan.
