Holland v Yugoslavia clockwatch
Kluivert gets the better of Saveljic
Holland 6-1 Yugoslavia (FT)
(Rotterdam. Att: 50,000)

First-choice keeper Edwin van der Sar comes in for Sander Westerveld as the Dutch make just one change from the side that beat world champions France.

Yugoslavia are without the suspended Slavisa Jokanovic and Mateja Kezman. Nisa Saveljic replaces Jokanovic while Dejan Govedarica comes in for Goran Djorovic.

3 mins: Dennis Bergkamp's fierce drive from the edge of the area cannons back off Sinisa Mihajlovic.

11 mins: Edwin van der Sar is forced to dive full length to punch clear Mihajlovic's free kick, which is whipped in from the left after Predrag Mijatovic is fouled by Paul Bosvelt.

15 mins: van der Sar pulls of great save to block Mijatovic's shot after Savo Milosevic has cut through the Dutch defence like a knife.

17 mins: Philip Cocu takes a whack from Milosevic as the Yugoslav striker tries an overhead kick.

19 mins: Bergkamp scuffs his left-foot shot but still forces Kralj into a diving save low down to his left.

20 mins: Edgar Davids wastes the best chance of the game so far when he blazes over with just the goalkeeper to beat after being put through by Bergkamp.

24 mins: Kluivert puts Holland in front after latching onto a wonderful chip from Bergkamp and then planting a right-foot shot past Kralj from eight yards.

25 mins: Boudewijn Zenden comes close to doubling Holland's lead when he fires in a low, right-foot shot which Kralj just about hangs onto.

30 mins: Kralj does well to keep out another Dutch effort, this time from Arthur Numan, who fires in a shot from the left.

31 mins: Mihajlovic tries his luck from long range but his dipping free kick from 30 yards is saved low down to his left by van der Sar.

36 mins: Milosevic goes down after Zenden boots the ball into his face. After treatment, Milosevic returns to the fray.

38 mins: Kluivert sidefoots home his second of the game, this time getting on the end of a defence-splitting pass from Davids.
