FORTALEZA, Brazil :  Arjen Robben did little to defuse the debate about his reputation for diving. The Netherlands winger earned an injury-time penalty Sunday and then watched as teammate Klaas Jan Huntelaar converted from the spot to give the Dutch a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Mexico in the second round of the World Cup.


  
Robben collapsed theatrically under a challenge from Rafael Marquez, causing Mexico coach Miguel Herrera to blame his team's loss on referee Pedro Proenca.
   
Herrera says "we ended up losing because he whistled a penalty that did not exist," adding that Robben "dived three times. The referee should have cautioned him."
