Dutch fans relieved after nail-biter World Cup quarter-final v/s Costa Rica

Amsterdam, July 6 (ANI): Dutch supporters celebrated after a nervous match against Costa Rica which they won on penalties. A viewing of the match for 1200 people was organized at a former school in Amsterdam under the glass roof and flags of all World Cup participating countries. The city did not give permission for public viewing on a large scale because of the late timing of the match, so fans have mostly spread throughout the city's bars to watch their team. Jul 6, 2014
