Robben cheated to win penalty - Murphy

Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy says Arjen Robben cheated by diving to win a last-minute penalty to help the Netherlands to a 2-1 round of 16 win over Mexico.

With the score at 1-1 the match looked to be heading for extra time before Rafael Marquez was adjudged to have brought down Robben in the penalty area, with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar stepping up to score and break Mexican hearts.

Murphy admits Marquez was "silly" to go for the tackle but says Robben went down with "minimal" contact and wishes the talented forward would cut it out of his game.

The Netherlands will now face Costa Rica in the quarter final on Saturday, 5 July.
