Speaking after the game, Danny Blind confirmed that Janssen had suffered a concussion and is a doubt for Netherlands tie with Luxembourg on Sunday.

He said, “Vincent Janssen is going to be a very difficult story.

“The physician told me it is a concussion. He lost 20 minutes of his memory, and doesn’t know what happened.

“We have to be careful with that and talk it through.”
