nouri u19After the 9-0 win over Gibraltar two days ago, Netherlands went into the second group game full of confidence, but they came unstuck in the first half against a determined Liechtenstein.

It wasn’t until the 67th minute that substitute Steven Bergwijn broke the deadlock, and with three minutes to go Max Goppel put the ball in his own net to make it 2-0 at the end.

Netherlands are now guaranteed a top two spot in the group and a place in the elite qualifying round ahead of the final game against France next week.

Netherlands line-up: Van Bladeren, Duarte, Fosu Mensah, Van Drongelen, Carolina (60. Bergwijn), Schuurman, De Jong (46. Van de Beek), Paal (46. Nouri), Berden, Lammers, Dilrosun.
