Netherlands officially secured a ticket into the UEFA Nations League semifinals after their success in holding Germany 2-2 on Monday.
Needing only a point to secure their path into the competition’s first finals edition, Ronald Koeman’s men did just what was asked of them on that final group game.
It was far from an easy ride for the Dutch though as they found themselves trailing 2-0 down by half time when Germany scored though Timo Werner and Leroy Sane.
Koeman’s boys tried hard to get themselves back into the game, but were struggling to do so up until the last five minutes, notably after Quincy Promes managed to pull one back on 85 minutes.
The visitor finally drew level in stoppage time thanks to Virgil Van Dijnk’s goal in the 90th minute which pretty much sealed Netherland’s passage into the semifinals round next summer.
Koeman’s side are the final contestant for that first ever showdown as previously, three other teams, Portugal, England along with Switzerland all have made their way into the semifinals.
Surprisingly none of their four finalist can be considered as the ultimate favorite from their group as they eliminated other famous nations such as Italy, France, Spain, Belgium and Germany.
