The "Elftal" assumed control from the starting whistle, and they should have marked the opener early in the game but for all that the efforts from Memphis Depay, Dumfries and Georginio Wijnaldum lacked in accuracy.

The 16,000 spectators at the Amsterdam Johan Cruijff Arena saw a powerful performance from the Dutch but yet Wout Weghorst and Dumfries remained wasteful with their promising chances before the half time.

After the interval, the hosts were eventually able to turn their chances into a tangible reward after Ukraine goalkeeper Heorhiy Bushchan blocked a cross into the path of Wijnaldum, who rifled the opener from 13 meters into the top left corner seven minutes into the second half.
