Netherlands reached the World Cup semi-finals after a penalty-shootout victory over Costa Rica in Salvador.
At the end of a goalless 120 minutes, Louis van Gaal replaced goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen with Tim Krul, and the Newcastle man made two saves as the Dutch won 4-3 on spot-kicks.
Krul first saved from Los Ticos captain Bryan Ruiz.

He then denied Michael Umana to clinch their place in the last four.
Keylor Navas made a string of fine saves to keep the CONCACAF side on level terms.
None was better than this from Wesley Sneijder:
Great free-kick from Sneijder, equally good save from Navas to keep the time tied! https://t.co/JFmuibETdW— FansAllStar Football (@FASfootball) July 5, 2014
The shot stopper had earlier denied Robin van Persie.
Then Memphis Depay was repelled from close range.
When Navas was beaten in the second half, the woodwork came to the rescue as Sneijder's free-kick hit the post.

Navas then made another fine save from Van Persie.

That was before a remarkable goal-line clearance by Yeltsin Tejeda saw the match go into extra time.
Navas was also called into action in the opening period of extra time, as he foiled Ron Vlaar.
However, there was late drama, as Marcos Urena was denied by Cillessen.
Then Sneijder hit the woodwork for a second time, meaning the match would be settled by a penalty shootout.
So close! Sneijder's hits the wood work for a 2nd time https://t.co/7bGW73r1Pr— Footy Vines.com (@Footy_Vines_) July 5, 2014
The Dutch play Argentina in the last four on Wednesday.
