Netherlands won all their  three matches to top the Group B, thrashing Spain in their opening match by 5-1 before beating Australia by 3-2. The Oranje finished off their group with another impressive victory, a 2-0 over Chile. They are currently on a five-match winning run

Ladbrokes Betting BonusThe Netherlands should welcome back defender Bruno Martins Indi after he missed the win over Chile with concussion while Robin van Persie makes his return from suspension. Ahead of this test Nigel de Jong, Daley Blind, Arjen Robben and Stefan de Vrij all trained separate from the group with minor knocks, but they are expected to be fit. Leroy Fer is definitely out.

After a narrow win over Cameroon, Mexico played to a 0-0 draw facing Brazil and then beat Croatia 3-1 in the last group match thanks to goals from Guardado, Rafa Márquez, and Javier Hernández. They finishing unbeaten with seven points and only missing out on top spot on goal difference.

The only enforced absentee for Herrera's side is José Juan Vázquez, who misses out through suspension. In his place could well be 34-year-old Carlos Salcido. Javier Hernandez is likely to start from the bench, despite netting in the 3-1 win over Croatia.

Mexico’s history in the knock out stages doesn’t inspire much confidence; since 1994 they have lost out in the second stage each time, while their record against the Dutch in their last four encounters has seen them lost three and draw one while shipping at least two goals in each game. The Netherlands are also unbeaten against Mexico in their last four international games.
