Huntelaar scored from the penalty spot four minutes into stoppage time to give the Netherlands' a 2-1 win over Mexico in the round of 16 at the World Cup on Sunday.

It was an absolutely improbable comeback for the Dutch, who trailed 1-0 after 87 minutes. Wesley Sneijder scored the equalizer in the 88th minutes and then Arjen Robben drew a penalty in the box in the 92nd minute, which helped set up Huntelaar's goal. While it was a nice moment for Huntelaar, Robben and Robin van Persie continue to dominate the playtime time up front.
