Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS - — From wire re­ports

When: :30 p.m. to­day • Where: Cape Town TV-ra­dio: ESPN and KZNX-AM ( 530), KWNX-AM ( 260) Nether­lands: The Oranje have style and flair, but they haven’t blown peo­ple away. Yet the fourth-ranked Dutch are the only team to win all five of their matches. Mid­fielder Wes­ley Snei­jder is the big star. He could use some fin­ish­ing help from dis­ap­point­ing Robin van Per­sie. The Dutch will be with­out sus­pended right back Gre­gory van der Wiel and de­fen­sive mid­fielder Nigel de Jong.

Uruguay: La Ce­leste will rely even more on clever mid­fielder Diego For­lan be­cause they have man­power prob­lems for this one. Star scorer Luis Suarez drew a red card for knock­ing down Ghana’s po­ten­tial win­ning shot with his arm in the fi­nal sec­onds of over­time. “Truth is, it was worth it,’’ Suarez said. Uruguay also might be with­out cap­tain Diego Lugano (knee) and fel­low de­fender Diego Godin (ham­string).
