Dutch humiliate Germany in Nations League, Gibraltar wins

Germany's poor run continues as Netherlands hit three against Die Mannschaft

A first-half header by Dutch skipper Van Dijk gave the hosts the lead in Amsterdam. We missed out on scoring when we had the chances to do so.

"After we conceded, you could see that we were lacking confidence because the results haven't been so great in recent months".

They now sit bottom of their UEFA Nations League group with one point, behind the Dutch and France - who will be looking to pile the pressure on when they meet the Germans in Paris on Tuesday. That's hard to answer, we have clear chances.

They face world champions and group leaders France in the competition in Paris on Tuesday.

This is the first time the Dutch have beaten Germany for 16 years and the comprehensive defeat leaves Loew under increasing pressure to resign after 12 years in charge.

Van Dijk reacted first to nod in from close range after Ryan Babel had headed against the crossbar following Depay's right-wing corner.

"Breaking apart like that in the last 10 minutes is not good", Low added. The fact is, we had so many chances in the last two games but couldn't score.

Since the end of their World Cup qualifying campaign in October 2017, Germany have only won one competitive match - a 2-1 World Cup win over Sweden - and gained two victories in friendlies - against Saudi Arabia and Peru.

After van Dijk's opener, the Dutch had chances to double their lead but Wijnaldum shot wide and Depay headed off target.

Loew brought on Leroy Sane in the second half and the Manchester City forward looked unsafe attacking the Dutch on the left, but he also missed a clear chance to equalize in the 64th minute, firing wide when he had only goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen to beat.

The Netherlands is second in the three-team group behind France, which drew 0-0 with Germany.

Having broken the German defence in the final 10 minutes, Depay hit the net, then the crossbar before Wijnaldum swept in their third goal just before the final whistle.
