thumbnail Hello,

The midfielder was frustrated by Oranje's approach in Monday's clash, claiming his side did far more in an effort to win the game

Chile star Arturo Vidal has hit out at Netherlands' approach to Monday's World Cup clash, insisting Louis van Gaal's men "didn't play for 90 minutes".

Two second-half goals from Leroy Fer and Memphis Depay secured a 2-0 win for the Dutch to send them into the last-16 as group winners at the expense of Jorge Sampaoli's side.

Chile had 68 per cent possession and completed 492 passes to Netherlands' 226, and although they were unable to muster as many attempts on goal as Oranje, Vidal - who did not feature in the clash - still believes his was the only team playing to win the match.

"We had the ball for about 70 per cent of the game, I think we did everything to win the game. At the end of the day they won, but I think we played a great match," the Juventus man told Goal.

"I think that for 90 minutes they didn't play at all. They did a little to score two goals and win, but we did OK and we'll do well in the next match as we go on."

Vidal, who was struggling with injury in the build-up to the tournament, also stressed that he will be perfectly fit for the knockout stages as Chile prepare to face one of Brazil, Croatia or Mexico in the next phase.
