The best and the worst of Oranje were both on show on Sunday night as the Netherlands took a commanding 2-0 lead over Ukraine before conceding two goals in four minutes to make it 2-2. Luckily for Frank de Boer, Denzel Dumfries was able to restore the Dutch lead late on, leaving his side in a healthy position heading into this match.
Austria also scored three goals in their opening game, beating minnows North Macedonia 3-1 in what turned out to be a very professional performance. There’s no doubting the Netherlands represent a tougher task, but another positive result for Austria here would effectively seal their place in the knockout rounds.
