Netherlands send out a statement in their World Cup qualifying campaign by thrashing Montenegro 4-0 at Philips Stadion. Memphis Depay opened the scoring from the penalty spot before adding a second with a powerful finish. Georginio Wijnaldum put the result beyond doubt before Cody Gakpo notched his first international goal with a stunning effort. It could have been a different story had Stefan Mugosa taken a glorious opening to equalise, but Montenegro paid the price for their lack of cutting edge. Louis van Gaal is up and running with his first victory in his second spell in charge of the Oranje.
