Netherlands U17’s comfortably defeated Israel U17’s 2-0 and have almost sealed their spot at the European Championships in May.

Netherlands comfortably defeated Northern Ireland 5-0 on Wednesday and Israel were also no problem for the young Oranje side.

After half-an-hour, AZ midfielder Mohamed Taabouni fired Netherlands in front before he set up Ajax striker Brian Brobbey to make it 2-0 before the break.

The second half was a stroll for Netherlands and they remain top of the group on six points. The Czech Republic also have six points ahead of their clash on Tuesday. Top of the group goes directly to the tournament, but even if Netherlands missed out they would almost certainly go through as one of the best runners’up.
