Nico Schulz’s 90th minute goal helped Germany make amends for blowing a two-goal lead in a 3-2 defeat of the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Sunday, as the German opened EURO 2020 qualifying with all three points.

The win puts Germany a point back of Northern Ireland’s group-leading four, keeping the Dutch on three points.

Goals by Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry had the Dutch trailing 2-0 in Amsterdam, but Memphis Depay is having himself a week.

Three days after scoring in the first minute as part of a brace in battering Belarus 4-0, Memphis set up Matthijs de Ligt after halftime before scoring himself to level the score line at 2.

But Hoffenheim’s Schulz scored in stoppage time to give the Germans their win.
