Impressive as Arjen Robben and his Dutch teammates were in advancing to the World Cup quarterfinals, they seek much more.

The Netherlands reached the final eight Monday when standouts Robben and Wesley Sneijder scored in each half of a 2-1 victory over Slovakia.

"We played a difficult match. Main thing is, we are through," Robben said. "Probably the perfect game has still to come."

The Dutch might need to approach perfection in their next match, against either Brazil or Chile. For now, they can enjoy the rekindling of the crafty Dutch offense — and they can credit Robben, who made his first start of the tournament after recovering from a hamstring injury.
