Germany picked up their first win of Euro 2020 qualifying with a last gasp win over the Netherlands.

The meeting between the Netherlands and Germany had been hotly anticipated following their exciting encounters in the Nations League last year, and it proved to live up to the billing.

Leroy Sane handed the Germans the lead with a smart finish. Serge Gnabry doubled that lead with a superb curling effort before the break.

Mathijs de Ligt got the Netherlands back on track with a header early in the second half before Memphis Depay restored parity with his strike.

The game appeared to be heading for a draw before Nico Schulz fired home late on to secure all three points for Germany.
