Holland now have a date for Sunday's showpiece finale where they will be up against either Spain or Germany, who play in the second semi-final on Wednesday.
Winger Robben has been a prominent figure for the Dutch since returning from injury, and speaking after the match he insisted that following his Champions League defeat to Inter with Bayern Munich, he won't let allow his side to lose in his latest major final appearance.

"We had only one goal ahead of the tournament," Robben was quoted as saying by NOS.
"We had a good look at each other before the match against Uruguay and I was convinced that we'd win the match.
"This Dutch team is simply a great squad. We need only one more victory now. We're almost there. I recently lost a big final on club level and I won't let this happen again.
"We're full of confidence at the moment. We'll have to wait and see who will be our opponent in the final, but Spain and Germany are both great footballing nations.
"If Germany turn out to be our next opponent, I'll be even more motivated. I can't afford to lose against Germany, because my team-mates at Bayern will make fun of me all season."
