Soccer-Netherlands and Mexico goalless at halftime

June 29, 2014

FORTALEZA, Brazil, June 29 (Reuters) - The Netherlands were

level at 0-0 against Mexico by halftime in their World Cup last

16 game on Sunday in a tight affair in which neither side

created a clear scoring chance.

Mexico's Hector Herrera, Carlos Salcido and Giovani Dos

Santos all tried their luck, while Dutchman Arjen Robben was

unfortunate not to get a penalty in added time.
