bergwijn oranjeThe young Dutch side let a two goal lead slip in a 2-2 draw with England on Thursday, which was then followed by the dismissal of Bilal Ould-Chikh, Calvin Verdonk and Sheral Floranus from the squad by coach Aron Winter after the trio’s unprofessional behaviour.

However the international break has ended in victory for Winter, despite his side twice giving away a lead against the Czech’s.

PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Berghuis opened the scoring after 13 minutes, but the hosts leveled six minute’s later through Ondrej Mihalik. Bergwijn restored the lead from the penalty spot on the hour mark, but once again the Czech’s came back thanks to a penalty of their own, scored by Mihilik.

Substitute Ajax winger Gino Dekker fired Netherlands back in front before PSV striker Sam Lammer’s sealed the win just before the end.

Netherlands U19 side: Van Osch, Ter Avest (46. Eiting), Fosu Mensah, Van Drongelen, Lelieveld, Duarte, Van de Beek (88. Rosario), Nouri, Bergwijn, Schuurman (60. Lammers), De Jong (60. Dekker)

Winter now awaits the draw for the elite round of qualifying for Euro 2016, which takes place on the 2nd of December.
