Brazil, Netherlands 1-1 after 60 minutes
PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa — The Netherlands and Brazil are 1-1 after 60 minutes of a World Cup quarterfinal after an own goal by Brazil’s Felipe Melo in the 53rd minute.

Earlier, Robinho took Felipe Melo’s low pass up the middle of the field and finished with a low shot to put the five-time champions ahead in the 10th minute.
Gregory Van der Wiel of the Netherlands received a yellow card in the 48th minute for diving.
