  Euro 2004: Dutch in penalties win
Updated 27 June 2004, 10.29
Edwin van der Saar saves the crucial penalty
Holland are in the semi-finals of Euro 2004 after knocking out Sweden in a penalty shoot-out 5-4.

Arjen Robben, who joins Chelsea in the summer, netted the winning penalty after Swedish defender Olof Mellberg saw his spot-kick saved.

The match finished 0-0 but Holland had the better of the game, with Robben in excellent form throughout.

The Dutch will now play tournament hosts Portugal in the first semi-final in Lisbon on Wednesday.

Even though Holland had more chances Sweden could still have sneaked through, hitting the crossbar and the post in extra-time.

Robben had already hit the post earlier in the game for the Dutch.

Like England, Holland have often struggled in penalty shoot-outs, going out of four of their last five tournaments that way.
