Urby Emanuelson made his first start for Holland under 20 in the World Cup and scored a goal. After Hedwiges Maduro had opened the score against Australia from a corner, Emanuelson made it 2-0. Holland eventually defeated Australia 3-0 and thus qualified for the next round.
With four Ajax players (Vermeer, Emanuelson, Babel and Maduro) in the first eleven, Holland had little to fear from Australia.
Hedwiges Maduro gave Holland the lead after 20 minutes when he headed in a corner kick by Urby Emanuelson. In the 46th minute, Emanuelson himself scored his team's second after a good cross by Quincy Owusu-Abeyie. Ricky Kruys made it 3-0 with a good effort from distance.
The win made sure Holland go through to the next round.
