Jonathan de Guzman starred in Holland's World Cup win over Spain
13th June 2014
Jonathan de Guzman started for Holland as they stunned World Cup holders Spain by running out shock 5-1 winners in their opening group game in Brazil.
The midfielder, who has spent the last two seasons on loan with the Swans from Villarreal, was given a starting role by Louis van Gaal as the Dutch gained revenge for their defeat to the Spanish in the 2010 final.
Xabi Alonso had put the defending champions ahead with a penalty, but Robin van Persie's stunning header put Holland back on level terms before the break.
But the second half was all about the Dutch, and they went ahead via Arjen Robben before Stefan De Vrij doubled the advantage.
And Holland's mesmerising attack blew Spain away to clinch a headline-grabbing victory with further goals from van Persie and Robben.
It was de Guzman's 11th cap for Holland, while Swans keeper Michel Vorm was an unused substitute for van Gaal's side.
