Watch: Liverpool duo & ex Man Utd man score as Holland shock Germany

Videos

Two Liverpool players and a former Manchester United man were on the scoresheet as Holland heaped more misery on Germany with a 3-0 win in the UEFA Nations League on Saturday night.

Germany are still reeling from their shock exit at the group stage of this summer’s World Cup and have now lost six of their last 10 matches.

Joachim Low’s side sit bottom of Group A1, which also contains France, after they “broke apart” in Amsterdam – in the words of their own manager.

The hosts led 1-0 at half-time after Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk reacted quickest to head home the opening goal.

Germany had chances to equalise, most notably when Manchester City’s Leroy Sane came off the bench to drag an excellent opportunity wide, but became increasingly disjointed as the game wore on.

With the defence all at sea, former Manchester United man Memphis Depay doubled Holland’s lead with five minutes remaining.

And Georginio Wijanldum rounded off the scoring in stoppage time with a brilliant run and finish, although the defending again left a lot to be desired.
