Netherlands & Japan - no goals

The Netherlands heavily dominated the first half an hour of the match against Japan but the score remained 0-0 as the Dutch gave few scoring chances in the World Cup Group E match. Wesley Sneijder sent a free kick over the bar, and Dirk Kuyt saw his overhead kick blocked by Japanese defender Yuji Nakazawa. Midfielder player Mark van Bommel paired well with forward player Robin van Persie in the Netherlands' effort to push through Japan's sturdy defenses. Earlier, Netherlands and Japan named unchanged line-ups for their match, after both teams won their World Cup openers.

Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk again left winger Arjen Robben on the bench and kept Dirk Kuyt on the right of midfield. Kuyt scored the Netherlands' second goal in its 2-0 win over Denmark. Japan coach Takeshi Okada also stuck with the starting 11 that beat Cameroon with 1-0 goals in their World Cup.
