UEFA League of Nations: The Netherlands beats Belgium for the first time since 1997 – Football

In the fourth group of the league, the Netherlands defeated Belgium 4: 1 (1: 0).

The Netherlands beat Belgium for the first time since 1997. In the previous eight mutual matches, the teams fought six times and the Belgians won twice.

Five minutes before the end of the first half, Steven Bergwein took the lead, but in the 51st minute Memphis Depay doubled the lead.

This was followed by two Dutch goals in four minutes, with Denzel Dumfries sending the ball to the home goal and leaving Depay again.

The home side only managed to score in the third minute of compensation time, when the Dutch goalkeeper was beaten by Mish Bachayu.

As a result, the Netherlands and Poland have won in the fourth group of League A, while Belgium and Wales have lost.

In the first group of the A league, Austria beat Croatia 3: 0 (1: 0).

In the 41st minute, the Austrians were put in the lead by Marko Arnautovičs, but in the 54th minute, Michael Gregoričs achieved 2-0.

Just three minutes after the second goal, the home keeper was beaten for the third time, this time by Marsel Zabicer.

In another game in the first group, France conceded Denmark’s lead with 1: 2 (0: 0).

Karims Benzem took the lead first, but the visitors scored two unanswered goals.

Andreas Cornelius reached the draw, but just two minutes before the end of the regular time, Cornelius scored the winning goal for Denmark again.

The League of Nations tournament is in its third year.

Last season’s final tournament took place last October, with France winning Spain in the title race. In the first season, the final was hosted by Portugal, making the home team the first UEFA League of Nations champions in history.
