World Cup final to be all-European

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) - There will be an all-European World Cup final following the Netherlands' 3-2 victory over Uruguay.

After playing to a 1-1 tie at halftime, the Dutch took a 3-1 second half lead on goals by Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben.

Maximiliano Pereira scored a goal in injury time for Uruguay to make the last few minutes exciting, but the Dutch held on for the victory.

Netherlands will play the winner of Wednesday's semifinal between Spain and Germany in Sunday's finale in South Africa.
