WORLD CUP: Netherlands break Senegalese hearts

The Dutch left it late to hand African Champions, Senegal their first defeat of the tournament.

In an otherwise even game, Louis Van Gaal’s men managed to come out tops, thanks to two goals scored by Gakpo and Klaasen.

Barcelona midfielder, Frenkie De Jong whipped a peach of a ball into the box, and Gakpo darted in behind the defence, beat Chelsea’s Mendy to the ball, and headed it straight into the top corner!! His anticipation, and what a great finish from the highly sought-after forward, was all it took with just minutes left to play, the Dutch had a 1-0 lead!

For their second, Depay broke one-on-one with Koulibaly and stepped beyond him before shooting early.

Mendy got down to the effort, but could only parry it straight into the path of Klaassen, who arrived late to slot the ball into the empty net!

A late flurry from the Dutch saw them pull away from Senegal, and they would end the game with a 2-0 victory!
