PICTURE: Klaas Jan Huntelaar dedicates Holland goal celebration to Eric Cantona

by Sam Peoples

<!–Article Start–>Klaas Jan Huntelaar’s dramatic penalty completed a stunning late turnaround for Holland against a resilient Mexico last night.

After coming on as a substitute, Huntelaar stepped up to take the penalty instead of Arjen Robben and he made no mistake from the spot to give Holland a win that will really give them momentum to beat Costa Rica in the semi-finals.

However, as good as the penalty was, his celebration was even better.

Huntelaar reeled off towards the corner flag and dedicated his very own Eric Cantona tribute with a fine leap that even the Frenchman would have been happy with.

In all seriousness, Huntelaar shouldered the responsibility for Holland in much the same fashion as Cantona did on so many occasions for United and marching forwards to the quarter-final against Costa Rica, the Dutch will be full of confidence that they can do the same all over again. After all, they are only three wins away from winning the World Cup.
