Soccer -Australia and Netherlands level at 1-1 at halftime


PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil, June 18 (Reuters) - Australia and the Netherlands were level 1-1 at halftime in their World Cup Group B match on Wednesday after a stunning volley by Tim Cahill cancelled out Arjen Robben's third goal of the tournament.

Cahill equalised for Australia in the 21st minute, just moments after the Netherlands had taken the lead.

Robben had shrugged off the challenge of Australian defender Alex Wilkinson near the halfway line before racing into the penalty area and firing a shot past goalkeeper Mat Ryan. (Reporting by Nigel Hunt, editing by Ed Osmond)
