Nations League: Netherlands beat Poland to close on final
After defeating Poland in their most recent encounter, the Netherlands are still in charge of Nations League Group A4.
After 13 minutes in Warsaw, Cody Gakpo reacted to Denzel Dumfries’ low ball into the box to give the visitors the lead. On the hour mark, Steven Bergwijn’s curling effort gave Louis van Gaal’s unbeaten team the victory.
For the Netherlands to go to the Nations League finals next summer, they must overcome their final match against second-placed Belgium.
