They say you have to be Krul to be kind. And van Gaal wasn't shy in making a tough, seemingly cruel substitution, saying his starting keeper wasn't his man when it came to spot kicks. Krul was the man, a little arrogant in his preamble face offs with the kick takers. But he backed up the arrogance with two saves stretching to his left, allowing Holland to reach their second consecutive World Cup semi. This one could have gone either way, a hatful of chances for both, but it was the Dutch who prevailed.
