Following an excellent yet tough away win over Germany last week, the Dutch national team went to the Balcans to face the Estonians in their capital, Tallinn. The team commanded by Ronald Koeman dominated and did not have a difficult time facing the Estonians, beating them 4-0 away. The Orange squad now has nine points in four games and occupies the third place in the group with one game less.
Differently from what they found at Hamburg against a powerful Germany, this time the opponent was let’s say… A little less complicated. The hosts, Estonia, had not yet got a point in this Euro 2020 Qualifiers. And it remained like that. The Netherlands national team imposed themselves and put four past the hosts.
Holland kicked off the game in a very dominant way and opened the scoring on 17 minutes. Following a good pass from Blind, Ryan Babel scored. The Dutch team could have extended their lead in the first half, but thanks to the goalkeeper Sergei Lepmets, the scoring remained like that until the break.
However, it took Babel only two mins into the second half to make it two for the Dutch. Memphis Depay scored the third at the 76th minute, as Liverpool’s Gini Wijnaldum closed the deal for the Dutch with three minutes remaining. 0-4 Holland.
Following two vital triumphs over Germany and Estonia, the Orange squad will keep going with their dream of coming back to European competition after some time. They’re back in action only next month, as they will play against Group C leaders, Northern Ireland, at home, on October 10, and Belarus, on October 13. After that, The Netherlands closes the qualifying tournament with an away game against Northern Ireland, on November 16 and a home match against Estonia, on November 19.
