71' - PENALTY! Astonishing decision as De Ligt is penalised for hand ball, although the defender had no idea where the ball was.

Appeared Schulz was offside anyway.

The decision stands and Kroos to take. Astonishing.

40' Depay heads off target following a cross from De Roon. The Netherlands failing to create anything off substance at present. 
34' Kimmich receives a yellow card, following a collision with De Ligt.

Depay gets a booking after arguments break out between the two sets of players - tensions are high in Hamburg.

Germany taking a more robust approach, sitting deep and soaking up Dutch pressure, looking to catch them on the break.

No high press, just organised and denying their visitor's any space.


Blind's free-kick finds the head of De Ligt, but his attempt flashes across goal and goes wide.


Promes with a fantastic cross to find Babel and it looked a certain goal!

It's been a relatively quiet start to the game, the Dutch dominating possession in the early stages.

Their Nations League action in June means they have two games in hand, so they’ll be looking to put some points on the board tomorrow night.
