Netherlands U19’s made it two wins from two games in the European Championship qualifying first round after a 2-0 victory over Hungary on Saturday. 

After the simple 3-0 win over Malta on Wednesday, Netherlands took another step towards the elite round of qualifying with a victory over Hungary in Lisse.

Halfway through the first half, Netherlands took the lead with Joel Piroe diving to head a free kick into the net at the back post. A second goal was eventually found in the 84th minute through substitute Donyell Malen, who fired in after a good team move.

Netherlands are top of the group and three points ahead of both Hungary and Slovenia. A win in the final game against Slovenia on Wednesday would send Oranje through as group winners and potentially secure a crucial seeded spot for the Elite round draw.

Netherlands line-up: Van de Meulenhof, Teze, Schuurs, Pierie, Kemper, Van de Looi, Duarte, Lonwijk, Nunnely (74. Aboukhlal), Piroe (88. Venema), Kadioglu (74. Malen)
