Netherlands U21’s made it three wins out of three in their European Championship qualifying group with a convincing 4-0 win in Norway.

Erwin van de Looi decided to name the same eleven that defeated Portugal 4-2 earlier in the week.

Netherlands started slowly in Norway but after half an hour they had the lead when Rick van Drongelen worked in a Teun Koopmeiners free kick.

A minute into the second half, Calvin Stengs made it 2-0 with a thunderous strike from the edge of the box that flew into the net via the crossbar.

Owen Wijndal then set up Dani de Wit to make it 3-0 with a header before van Drongelen sealed the victory late on with a fierce strike.

Netherlands have nine points out of nine in the qualifying group and currently sit top, three points ahead of Portugal. The top team from each group goes into the final tournament, while number two heads into playoffs.
