Bakari Kone beats two Holland players and brilliantly fires past goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar to pull a goal back

 

Holland sealed a World Cup second-round berth after repelling a brave fightback by Ivory Coast in Stuttgart.

The Dutch went ahead via a stunning free-kick from Robin van Persie on 23 minutes before Ruud van Nistelrooy hit a sweet second four minutes later.

Bakari Kone pulled one back for the Ivorians when he smashed home from 25 yards after a powerful run.

But the Africans bowed out of the tournament as Holland held on for their second Group C victory.
