Sneijder won his 131st cap against Luxembourg on his 33rd birthday on Friday and he celebrated with a goal in the 5-0 win over Luxembourg.

After the game, Sneijder said, “I have always worked towards this and given so much to be part of squads on a regular basis.

“Tonight is special especially breaking the record on your birthday and scoring and winning 5-0.

“Arjen Robben gave a really nice speech after the game about all the special times and things we have done during our time together in the national team setup.”

Sneijder received from the KNVB a special engraved shield with all the the internationals he has played.
