Dutch goalscorers Sneijder and Robben delighted with semi-final win

Holland' second-half heroes Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben were jubilant after helping their team into the World Cup final.

Inter Milan's Sneijder netted in the 70th minute when the score was 1-1 against Uruguay before Bayern Munich's Robben made it 3-1 just three minutes later to guide the Oranje into the tournament decider and both players were over the moon after playing their part in the victory which ended 3-2 following a late Uruguay goal.

"I'm extremely proud of what we've achieved in a really difficult match. We're just so happy to be in the Final. We made life difficult for ourselves in the last ten minutes, but that makes winning feel even better. There's nothing bigger than the World Cup Final, it's massive, fantastic," Sneijder said.

Robben added: "It's unbelievable and a terrific feeling. We're in the World Cup Final again after 32 years, what a performance! Now we're obviously set on winning the Final. I'm naturally supporting Germany and the Bayern Munich lads tomorrow. They deserve to make the Final, they've knocked out England and Argentina, which is just unbelievable. Holland against Germany would be my dream Final - but only if we win, of course, otherwise I won't be able to go back to Bayern. I'll have to find myself a new club."
