Netherlands 1-1 Spain: Oranje missed the opportunity to guarantee well-disposed win

The Netherlands got ready for their momentous Nations League double-header with a 1-1 draw against Spain in Amsterdam. The guests began the more brilliant and proceeded tactic following 18 minutes when Sergio Canales took a pass from Alvaro Morata and slipped the ball underneath the plunging Marco Bizot.

Oranje had just been compelled to make their first replacement as Nathan Aké endured a hamstring in the third minute and was substituted by Donny van de Beek.

Four replacements at half-time, encompassing the first cap for a very long time for Davy Klaassen, had an instant effect as the Dutch scored with their first possibility after the break.

A cross by Owen Wijndal discovered its approach to Donny van de Beek plain on the right-hand side and the Manchester United striker terminated the ball high into the net.

Memphis Depay had a brilliant opportunity to place his group in front to tackel Denzel Dumfries’ cross, yet the ball stalled out under his foot and his shot was well guarded by Unai Simon. The Spanish goalkeeper was called without hesitation again instantly a while later to deny Luuk de Jong.

De Boer Frank

The outcome leaves Frank de Boer actually sitting tight for his first success as manager as he plans for the final Nations League group matches at home to Bosnia-Herzegovina on Sunday and in Poland next Wednesday night. ‘We struggled in the start, certainly, yet we came into the game better in the wake of going 1-0 down,’ said De Boer.

‘In the second half we protected further and attempted more for the ball and we had the option to be substantially more hazardous. That was the distinction in the first and second half. ‘Obviously, I’d prefer to get my first success, yet how about we do it against Bosnia.’
