Dutch Into Nations League Semis After Draw With Germany
Written by darling on November 20, 2018
The Netherlands booked their place in the Nations League semi-finals – at France’s expense – with a dramatic 2-2 draw against Germany on Monday having scored twice in the last six minutes.
Dutch captain Virgil Van Dijk equalized from a deep 91st-minute cross, after Quincy Promes scored their first goal on 85 minutes, to cancel out Timo Werner and Leroy Sane’s first-half goals for Germany.
The point in Gelsenkirchen was enough to send Holland into the Nations League semis as Group One winners, with world champions France second, while bottom side Germany were already relegated to the ‘B’ league.
