turkeyNetherlands 2-1 victory over Kazakhstan put them back into contention for third place in group A, and a place in the play-offs for Euro 2016. However the Oranje were hoping that the Czech Republic would do them a favour and beat Turkey, meaning Netherlands fate going into the final game would be in their own hands.

Turkey had other ideas though and their 2-0 win over the Czech Republic in Prague means Netherlands are set to miss out on their first European Championships since 1984.

Netherlands now need to beat the Czech Republic on Tuesday and hope that Iceland, who have drawn their last two qualifiers with Kazakhstan and Latvia, can triumph in Turkey or there will be no Euros for the Oranje next summer.
