Soccer-Argentina, Dutch level at 0-0 at halftime in semi


SAO PAULO, July 9 (Reuters) - Argentina and the Netherlands

were level at 0-0 at halftime in their World Cup semi-final on

Wednesday with Lionel Messi's side having most of the play and

creating the best chances.

Messi's low free kick around the wall was saved by Jasper

Cillessen in the 15th minute and Ezequiel Garay's diving header

from Ezequiel Lavezzi's whipped-in corner went over the bar with

the Argentina defender under pressure from Ron Vlaar.

The winners will play Germany in the final on Sunday.
