Fortunately, there is still much to improve, we have seen that again today, but this team has shown that it has a bright future ahead.

Dutch captain Virgil van Dijk provided a touching moment by consoling the recently bereaved referee in his team's game against Germany, just minutes after netting a late equalizer to book a spot in the Nations League semi-finals.

Van Dijk found himself playing as a centre-forward in the dying minutes of yesterday's match as they desperately went in search of an equaliser.

Virgil van Dijk then netted an equaliser in the 90th minute.

Manchester City star Sane struck his second worldwide goal shortly after Timo Werner's eighth-minute opener, but the hosts were left with a five-match competitive winless streak dating back to their forgettable World Cup.

Thanks to that goal, Van Dijk now has a real chance of being the first Dutch captain to lift a trophy since Ruud Gullit in 1988 - a surefire way to forever endear him to his country's supporters.
