After six out of six in the Nations League, the Netherlands began the duel with a confidence-filled Poland at De Kuip in Rotterdam. Compared to the match against the Red Devils over a week ago, Felix was in goal instead of Cillessen and Van Dijk took a break. De Vrij got his chance.
Lewandowski was not among the Poles. He also gets The rest, but he will play against the Red Devils next Tuesday.
Despite the growing confidence, Louis van Gaal’s players did not perform well against the Poles which led to a deficit in the 18th minute. Mate Kach scored his first goal for Poland with a cross on the ground: 0-1.
The national team coach Louis van Gaal’s speech didn’t surprisingly improve the game after the break, but it was still great. That scene started with a second goal for Poland.
The whole of Holland thought Frankowski was an offside, but that was not the case. For example, he could easily pass to the Zielinksi goalkeeper who followed him, who scored.
The double drawback was the incentive the Netherlands needed. After 135 seconds from 0-2, Davey Klassen made 1-2 on a Blind pass. Ajax midfielder ran a cross to the goal. And the Poles did not have time to worry.
139 seconds after 1-2 was 2-2. Dumfries scored. The VAR still has to investigate whether Bergwijn was not offside for this, but as with Poland 0-2, that was not the case.
It looks like a complete transformation is coming. And the Netherlands got a penalty kick in the 90th minute after a handball from a Polish defender. Depay did what he often does. Taking the penalty with a lot of risk. An error has occurred. Position bar 3-2. Orange missed two points.
