  • GOOOOAAAALLLL!!! What a strike!!! Wales are caught in possession down the left and Janssen feeds Lang. He twists away from both Mepham and Rodon, before setting himself to shoot and firing a low effort beyond Hennessey and into the corner of the net! 1-0 to the Dutch, and what a way to score the opener!

  • GOOOAAALLLL!!! There's the second!!! It's Gakpo who gets it, and what a goal it was!!! After latching onto a forward header, Gakpo evades Thomas and drives into the box. He takes on Rodon before shooting, but the ball ricochets off Mepham back into his path, and the PSV striker kept his composure to slot the ball into the bottom corner! What a finish from the young striker, and the Dutch are 2-0 up!
