Did Arjen Robben Dive to Win Netherlands' Decisive Penalty Against Mexico?

Netherlands produced a dramatic comeback on Sunday to beat Mexico 2-1 and advance to the World Cup quarterfinals.

This was the moment that ultimately decided the match: Arjen Robben going down after a challenge from Mexico captain Rafa Marquez.

There was clearly contact. Does that mean a penalty was the right decision? Or was Robben guilty of fooling the officials?

The debate over this one will run.
