Nico Schulz set up one goal and scored a 90th-minute victor as Germany snatched a 3-2 victory over the Netherlands in European Championship qualifying on Sunday.
The Dutch fought back from a 2-0 half-time deficit to tie things up through Mattis De Ligt and Memphis Depay, only to cop concede an injury-time victor from Nico Schulz. "We didn't put on the pressure and they had a lot of space".
Depay continued his strong run of global form - the Lyon striker has now scored nine goals and had five assists in 12 matches since Ronald Koeman's appointment as Dutch coach - but it was not enough to earn a point as Germany came back again even after squandering a two-goal lead.
"We had difficulties in the first half. But we should have had a point".
Germany burst out of the blocks and Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen had to beat away a fierce shot from Serge Gnabry after just two minutes.Читайте также: Hijacked ASUS software updates installed backdoor on at least 0.5 million PCs
It was Germany's first win in a competitive game since last year's World Cup, and came after a game in which Loew's side showed strength and fragility in equal measure.
"It's the Dutch mentality to try to score a third goal. What pleases me is that the team never lost the belief that they could win the game, and in the end we got our reward".
But Hoffenheim star Nico Schulz made it a hat-trick of goals for players not called up in Brazil, rounding off a fine German move to snatch a stoppage time victor.
Few players can make Van Dijk look slow and clumsy, but that is just what Gnabry did in beating the world's most expensive defender before scoring Germany's sensational second goal.
De Ligt made amends for his early slip by leaping between Thilo Kehrer and Ruediger to head past Neuer three minutes after the break.
It was the second time since November that the Netherlands had come from two goals down to equalise against Germany, and for Depay it was his 11th goal in his last 15 internationals.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
