Depay shines as Netherlands thump Germany

Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk

Van Dijk scored the opening goal as the Dutch beat Germany 3-0 on Saturday in the Nations League.

For Low's team, the defeat continued an alarming slump which saw the team exit the World Cup in Russian Federation at the group stage despite being defending champions.

Depay also struck the crossbar late on and Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum netted the other goals for a rampant Dutch side as their resurgent home form continued with a sixth victory in their last seven in front of their own fans.

They face a tough task in their next match on Tuesday, 16 October as they visit world champions and Nations League Group A1 leaders France. "This week we have worked hard, it is great that it will come out now".

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

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

4 men shot dead at toddler’s birthday party in Texas
A fight between families that erupted at a birthday party for a 1-year-old left four men dead and one injured in Texas Saturday. Authorities did not say what the men were arguing about, but said the shooting occurred in the backyard of a residence.

Depay would not be denied his goal, though, and when he used his pace to outstrip the German defence again, this time he had the beating of Neuer.

The Netherlands, managed by former Everton boss Ronald Koeman, are second in the three-nation group after beginning their campaign with a 2-1 defeat by France in September.

"After conceding, you could see that recent results have led to a lack of confidence", he said.

"We had chances so it's a good question to ask why we didn't score". We missed out on scoring when we had the chances to do so.

"It's hard to answer why we are struggling for goals".

"We play away in Holland, should have scored three or four, and lose 3-0".
