Virgil van Dijk, Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum handed Netherlands a 3-0 UEFA Nations League victory at home to a Germany side that missed 21 opportunities on goal.
Liverpool defender Van Dijk headed the hosts in front (30) at the Amsterdam ArenA on Saturday night, and after Leroy Sane was guilty of missing Germany’s best chance after the break, Depay (87) and Wijnaldum (90+3) wrapped up the victory late on.
It was the fourth time in six games Germany failed to find the net, while they have now won just three of their last 12 matches going into Tuesday’s Nations League match against world champions France.
Netherlands, meanwhile, pick up their first victory of the competition, but still trail France by one point in Group A1.
