Orange was a bit difficult out of the starting blocks, and had in the sixth minute on a 0-1-deficit. Daley Blind was simple-the ball run by Andre Carrillo, who then Yoshimar Yotun a not to miss opportunity, but he shot to an empty goal over next.

The netherlands was not shaken, because seven minutes later it was still touch for Peru. Aquino troefde after a corner kick Blind and devoured goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, who, despite his reserveplek at FC Barcelona for the time being the preference over Jeroen Zoet, with a hard header.

The home team was then finally in the lesson and took the initiative from the visitors. Memphis (shot over), Matthijs de ligt (header, next), Blind (shot in zijnet) and Sneijder (half-volley) got some more chances, but scored in the remainder of the first half.

Koeman grip halfway in and got Kevin Strootman and Georginio Wijnaldum to the side in favor of Davy Pröpper and Frenkie de Jong, who made his debut in Orange.

It was, however, the Netherlands in the 54th minute at 1-1. Sneijder sent a beautiful through ball Shaper only on goalkeeper Pedro Gallese off, but the midfielder of Club Brugge shot from ten metres on the incomprehensible way high.

Long did the 35,000 spectators’t have to wait on the 1-1, because on reference to The Young took Memphis there in the sixtieth minute later. Sneijder was then immediately thunderous applause to the side achieved.
