Netherlands asphalt Gibraltar in a easy win.

A touristic trip in an artificial grass,some fans and total training ground stuff for the football selection of Netherlands.Total supermacy in possesion 74% to only 26%,one sided play and a new vision to see fixtures coming,with Turkey very strong and one point ahead and Montenegro and Norway into the account with also six points reached.In this first tour of the oranje some regrets are … the possible goal of De Light that in fact passed the line in the end of the first half in Istanbul,not a good performance there against the homeside and some spaces given cheaply fot the turkish attack…That defeat 4-2 hurts not only for the three points given but also the defeat in a direct match.


Into the match.

Game started nervously with fouls from both sides,then the first real threat came by Matthijs De Light.Attempt missed. Matthijs de Ligt header from the left side of the six yard box was close, but missed to the left. Assisted was given by Steven Berghuis with a cross following a corner.After this chance of the 17-th minute ,Netherlands has a couple more with Gioginho Wijnaldum ,Denzel Dumfries and Davy Klaassen missed in the first 30 minutes.

Finally the guests find the net in the 42-nd with Steven Berghuis with left footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom left corner. Assisted by Georginio Wijnaldum.They scored after Gibraltar first substitution ,Erin Barnett replaced Kian Ronan.

Second half starts with a substitution for Netherlands, Ryan Gravenberch replaces Denzel Dumfries.They made one more in the 54-rth Donyell Malen replaces Daley Blind because of an injury.One minute later they score and here starts the job of crashing Gibraltar and starting the construction of the road that sends them to Qatar 2022.Luuk de Jong right footed shot from the centre of the box to the centre of the goal.Six minutes later Memphis makes it three from a free kick with a right footed shot to the bottom right corner.Two minutes later they score two more for two minutes 62′ and 64′ to make it five.Georginio Wijnaldum scored easily to the bottom left corner. Donyell Malen right footed shot from very close range to the centre of the goal. Assisted by Davy Klaassen.

Gibraltar manager Julio Ribas decides to make some changes.Graeme Torrilla replaces Louie John Annesley in the 73 minute and forced to  replace Kyle Albert Goldwin with Dayle Edward Coleing because of an injury one minute later.

Both managers made their moves after ten minutes but was Netherlands who countinued asphalting Gibraltar ,scoring two more with Donny van de Beek who made his presence to the field after the replacement with Davy Klaassen in the 77 minute and Memphis Depay who right footed shot from very close range.

Gibraltar 0, Netherlands 7.It could have been worse but the fresh hands of Kyle Goldwin who conceeded two earlier saved a powerfull shot from Depay.At the end a consolation ,a last Corener for Gibraltar which made a match to forget and Netherlands which see ahead an easy road especially after Turkey’s draw 3-3 against Latvia.
