Germans began the year as the favourite one while it ended as a team in the second tier of the Nations League. It was inevitable that the German Virgil van Dijk in Germany football shirts netted a goal in the last minute, equalizing scorelines to a certain extent on Monday night. The Netherlands national football team gradually get rid of the existential crisis, defeating Germany 3-0 earlier. In Gelsenkirchen, another match was held on a chilly night. The disastrous year of the German side would be ended in a humble position.
The Germany squad could have owned a total different end. Five minuted before, the German team tended to end the game with a win, which could be taken as a flicker of light in darkness, although the victory could not save the team from Nations League relegation. Due to goalscorers Timo Werner and Leroy Sané, two torch bearers would bring hope to the team.
See some detailed information of Nations League. After an astonished win over France, Germany were relegated from Group A1 in the Nations League. In the game, Netherlands won two goals by Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis, breaking champions 15-game unbeaten run. Winless matches left the Germany side to the bottom of the table and fell into League B. So the Netherlands national football team have a possibility to win the chance to play for the finals prior to France. On the basis of the win, Ronal Koeman’s footballers will reach the top of the group. Even a draw will take effect, owing to their higher scores. The Netherlands national football team deserved the win at De Kuip; under-par France squad would have lost more goals if not help of the goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Prior to volley in the box in added time, Wijnaldum netted a goal in the 44th minute.
Although having failed to win qualifications for the last two critical matches, Netherlands has recovered from previous gloom, under guidance from Koeman. Due to confidence from an emphatic 3-0 win over Germany, it is probable for the Netherlands to step towards an excellent opportunity within two minutes.
In the opening period, the ball was controlled by hosts, regardless of threats from France when a header was held by Jasper Cillessen.
Les Bleus needed one more goal to guarantee the top scores in the group. It seemed that the guy is content to stay back, and the team were glad to see Depay’s 13th-minute volley straight at Lloris.
Ahead of the mistake incurred by Steven N’Zonzi, the Netherlands national football team move slowly toward before half-time. Steven N’Zonzi helped a cross from Frenkie de Jong to Ryan Babel unintentionally. Wujnaldum responded quickly to the rebound after N’Zonzi’s close-range efforts.
France has no response except for going behind. When Everton defender was warned for a later studs-up challenge on Denzel Dumfries, France could have been reduced to 10 men. When Lloris shot down PSV Eindhoven right-back two times, then Daley Blind’s cross tried once again. After the Euro 2008, It is the first time that France was defeated by Netherlands.
