Both players strike similar fear into opposition defences and have both found themselves double or triple marked at times during the competition.“At this tournament more than any other tournament Robben is to the Netherlands what Lionel Messi is to Argentina,” Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder said at a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s match, as per The Telegraph.“He constantly occupies two or three opponents, creating space for others.”Indeed, with the Costa Rican defence focused on Robben, Sneijder enjoyed arguably his best match of the tournament in Netherlands’ quarter-final victory. He struck the woodwork on two occasions and set up two other chances for his teammates. via | Bleacher Report.
