Netherlands scored twice in the dying minutes through Wesley Sneijder and a Klaas Jan Huntelaar penalty to pull off a remarkable 2-1 victory over Mexico and move into the World Cup quarterfinals Sunday.Sneijder leveled with a thumping volley from the edge of the area two minutes from time, before Huntelaar converted from the spot in stoppage time after Mexico's captain Rafael Marquez upended Arjen Robben.Ochoa came to his side's rescue again 17 minutes from time when Robben escaped the clutches of Marquez, but saw his low effort turned behind by the Mexican stopper.After Robben was adjudged to have been clipped by Marquez in stoppage time, the Schalke striker coolly stroked home the penalty to eliminate Mexico at the last 16 stage for a sixth consecutive World Cup.
