Under new coach Bert van Marwijk, the Dutch team went on to secure a 100 percent record in their World Cup 2010 qualification campaign, and qualifying for the World Cup. The World Cup Draw saw the Dutch being placed alongside Denmark, Cameroon and Japan in Group E. The Dutch won 2–0 against Denmark in their opener at the World Cup. They then beat Japan 1–0.
They qualified for the Round of 16. In the first knockout round they faced Slovakia and came out with a 2–1 victory. In the quarter-finals against Brazil, the Brazilians held a 1–0 lead at the half and had never lost in 37 World Cup matches (35–0–2) in which they had held a halftime lead, but the Dutch scored twice for a 2-1 win to advance. In the semi-final the Dutch beat Uruguay 3–2 to advance to their first World Cup final since 1978.
The Dutch lost to Spain 1–0 after midfielder Andres Iniesta scored in extra time. The Dutch team was criticized for its rough play in the final, and was given nine yellow cards in the single game (including a double yellow card to John Heitinga). Johan Cruyff later public criticized the team for playing in an "ugly" and "vulgar" style. The Associated Press was of the opinion that the Dutch had "turned far too often to dirty tactics." This final also became Giovanni van Bronckhorst's last match as a professional before retiring.
