Cillessen only needed to stop one shot on goal to record a clean sheet for the Netherlands during their 2-0 victory over Chile in the World Cup on Monday.

Chile actually possessed the ball for 64 percent of the match, but obviously the Netherlands' defense was able to limit the shots taken on goal. In fact, Cillessen only needed to stop a total of six shots on goal throughout all three wins in group play. However, he'll face Mexico on Sunday and will likely be tested more than he has up until this point of the competition.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cillessen made three saves and only allowed a 27th minute penalty to Xabi Alonso in Netherlands' 5-1 rout of Spain in their World Cup opener Friday.

Cillessen made a number of fine saves, but overall the Spanish attack wasn't all that impressive. The five goals put the Dutch in a great position in the group, as they try to avoid finishing in second, which likely means a matchup against Brazil in the second round.
