Germany 2-4 Netherlands: As it happened

Germany could not build on Serge Gnabry's early goal as they succumbed to a Memphis Depay masterclass as the Netherlands won 4-2 in Friday's EURO 2020 qualifier in Hamburg to end the hosts 100 per cent start to Group C.

As it happened

SEE YOU ON MONDAY!

Germany go again on Monday against Northern Ireland, who remain three points ahead of them at the top of Group C. We'll see you then!

90+4' FULL TIME!!

The whistle sounds at a stunned Volksparkstadion - a brilliant, Memphis Depay-inspired second half has given the Dutch a famous win in Hamburg and brought Germany's 100 per cent start to Group C to a halt.

90+3' GNABRY GOES CLOSE

The Bayern man is in behind the Dutch defence, but volleys over...not an easy chance, but one Gnabry would have expected to take.

90+1' GOAL! GERMANY 2-4 NETHERLANDS

Depay is released into the Germany half...Tah jockeys...Wijnaldum is charging up on the right, and is found by Depay before he dispatches a low shot past Neuer. That was a devastating counter-attack and surely the game is now up for Germany.

89' GERMANY CAMPED OUT

The hosts are playing the game in the Dutch half, but Koeman's side have been a very different proposition in the second half, and the prospect of all three points has given them a second wind.

87' BRANDT ON

The Dortmund man is on, but the Dutch are very much on top. It's going to be really tough for Löw's side to turn this round now.

79' GOAL! GERMANY 2-3 NETHERLANDS

The Dutch win the ball back high up the pitch...Depay slips a lovely ball into Wijnaldum, he lifts as pass into the path of Malen, who sidefoots a volley past Neuer to stun the hosts. As painful as it is to say it, that was a beautifully worked goal.

77' GINTER BRAVERY

The Borussia Mönchengladbach defender throws himself in front of a Wijnaldum to block the Liverpool man's shot.

75' AN OPEN GAME

Both sides are not settling for a point here as they each try to get on the front foot at every opportunity.

72' GOAL! GERMANY 2-2 NETHERLANDS

Kroos is just the sort of man you want in this sort of situation...and he proves it as he sends Cillessen the wrong way. We're all square again!

68' PENALTY! FOR GERMANY

Schulz bursts into the box, battles with De Ligt...and the referee points to the spot as the ball hits the Dutch defender on the arm. He had totally lost sight of the ball, and was unlucky it hit his arm.

66' GOAL! GERMANY 1-2 NETHERLANDS

At a corner, Van Dijk dominates in the air...Neuer makes a world-class save to deny the Liverpool defender, but when the ball is played back in, Babel forces the ball over the line. Germany can't cope with the Dutch right now.

62' GINTER STRONG

Depay plays a fabulous ball into the run of Malen, but the substitute is pursued and eventually caught by Ginter, who cleans up with a minimum of fuss.

59' GOAL! GERMANY 1-1 NETHERLANDS

Babel hugs the left touch line, gets the ball across...Tah can't reach it, De Jong nicks it away from Schulz and then fires over the advancing Neuer to level. That has been coming!

56' AND NEUER!!

Dumfries finds space down the right and gets the ball into the box....Wijnaldum fires crisply goalwards, and Neuer has to move very smartly to his right to push the ball out.

55' KIMMICH TO THE RESCUE...

Depay breaks clear down the right and his low cross looks ideal for Wijnaldum to be able to shoot, but the lunging Kimmich gets a crucial touch to divert the ball away from the Liverpool man.

53' SCHULZ SHAKES THEM UP

The Dortmund full-back raids down the left before firing in a low cross..Werner lunges but it's smuggled behind for a corner.

52' GNABRY...INCHES AWAY

Fabulous run from Gnabry sees him get in front of his marker, Blind, but the Bayern man narrowly fails to connect with Werner's cross. If he had, he and Germany might have had a second.

51' NEUER SOLID

Promes drills in an effort from outside the Germany box - the Bayern goalkeeper is not for beating.

50' CLOSE

Reus steals in behind Daley Blind, lays it back for the onrushing Gnabry who drills the ball across...De Ligt brilliantly turns it over his own bar with Werner lurking.

48' KROOS IN A SPIN

The Madrid man sees Depay spin off him and play in Dumfries, but his first touch takes him away from goal and Tah steps in calmly to snuff out the danger.

46' SECOND HALF UNDERWAY

The Dutch have the honour...

45' HALF-TIME

Germany pragmatic and clinical, the Netherlands enterprising but toothless. The hosts haven't gotten out of first gear - they haven't had to - and have looked so dangerous on the occasions they have counter-attacked. They are worth that one-goal lead at the break.

41' REUS....DENIED

Werner cuts in from the left...and finds Reus who is all alone. He must score...but doesn't as Cillessen brilliantly denies him with a world-class reaction save. The Dortmund man is unlikely to get as good a chance as that again, he was all alone less than ten metres from goal.

40' DEPAY HEADS WIDE

The Lyon forward gets up well, but has to arch his back to reach the ball and can't keep his header down...Neuer was scrambling there though.

39' DUTCH PRESSURE

Ronald Koeman's side are still having the majority of possession, but have not forced a significant save from Manuel Neuer since their early shot from Depay. Much of that has to do with just how hard Kimmich is working in front of the back three.

35' KIMMICH BOOKED

The Bayern man leaps into De Ligt without any hope or thought of winning the ball and can have no arguments as he is shown the game's first yellow card.

32' PROMES-ING

Neat play on the edge of the Germany area gives Promes a shooting opportunity - he finds the hulking frame of Süle in the way to block his effort.

29' NEUER TIDIES UP

The Germany defence struggles to get a Depay corner clear, Van Dijk heads it back into the danger zone, and Neuer gleefully falls on the ball.

26' GNABRY GOES FOR THE LOB

The Netherlands lose the ball after a long spell of sterile possession, and with a single pass, Gnabry is charging down on the Dutch goal...he sees Cillessen in an advanced position in the penalty area and tries to lob him, but doesn't get enough air under his shot.

24' FIFTEEN IN A ROW?

Germany have won their last 14 - ONE, FOUR!! - FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO qualifiers. They've taken a step to extending that streak here already.

22' DE LIGT RISES HIGH

Depay slants a free-kick across the Germany penalty area...De Ligt climbs magnificently, but the Juventus defender cannot get his header on target. Prodigious leap though.

19' SCHULZ GETS FORWARD

Werner holds the ball up on the left and then plays a beautifully weighted ball for Schulz on the overlap…the Dortmund man gets his cross in, but Cillessen is there first.

17' GERMANY'S PLAN

The hosts are allowing their opponents to have the ball and then hitting them on the counter-attack, as we saw for the goal. When you have the pace of Werner and Gnabry and the passing ability of Kroos, why not?

14' KROOS FREE-KICK SIGHTER

The Real Madrid man has an opportunity here as the ball is slightly right of centre, 25 metres out...he fires...and it's over the bar. Not by much though. Just getting his eye in is Toni.

11' GNABRY ON FIRE

That's eight goals in nine internationals for the Bayern man. Ouch! He's hot!

9' GERMANY 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Klostermann makes a fabulous run down the right channel that is picked out by Kroos' even better ball...Cillessen blocks...but it drops for Gnabry, who fires into the far corner. Germany utterly clinical: that was their first major attack of the match.

8' DEPAY SCARE

Good strength from Babel to launch a counter-attack..picks out Depay on the left, cuts inside and skirts the edge of the box before it opens up for a shot...Neuer right behind it.

6' KROOS SHOT

The Real Madrid man drills an effort wide...Germany's first foray into Dutch territory.

5' SAFE HANDS FROM NEUER

The Germany captain comfortably claims a Depay cross that was deflected into his path. The Netherlands enjoying possession, but not doing anything with it for now.

3' FIRST CORNER

Goes to the Dutch...Depay bends it away from Neuer's goal, but finds only Reus at the near post. Germany will take delivery like that all night.

2' BABEL IN BEHIND

The ex-Hoffenheim man with the dyed red hair darts into space behind the Germany defensive three, but Lukas Klostermann is tracking him and is helped out by Timo Werner to avert the danger.

1' FIRST HALF KICKS OFF

Germany get the game underway at a packed Volksparkstadion. The hosts in their traditional black and white, the visitors in - you've guessed it - orange with white shorts.

FOUR-STAR SHOW

No, not the quality of the pre-match entertainment, but the four massive stars on the pitch ahead of kick-off, signifying the four FIFA World Cups the hosts have won. Awe-inspiring!

VOLLEY?!?!

There's a huge tifo in the stands reading 'Volley!' off to the right as the players exit the tunnel, not sure what that's all about. Underneath is another banner reading, 'From Hamburg to Munich right through to London'. The Germany fans have the EURO 2020 final in their sights already.

LÖW LOVES SERGE

The Germany boss this week surprised media by saying, "Serge will always play under me". No doubt the Bayern Munich man will be very happy to hear that, and Löw is as good as his word tonight.

TAH VERY MUCH, JOGI

Jonathan Tah comes into the Germany defence in place of the injured Thilo Kehrer to make his competitive debut on home soil. And where better than Hamburg, his home town and where he started his professional career.

BABEL BACK IN GERMANY

The Dutch XI has a familiar look to it, as Ronald Koeman has picked the same team that lost 3-2 to Germany back in March. UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Virgil van Dijk captains the side, while Frenkie De Jong – who completed a move from Ajax to Barcelona over the summer – will once again be pulling the strings in midfield. Former Hoffenheim attacker Ryan Babel also makes the cut.

GERMANY STARTING XI

No major surprises in the hosts' line-up, and a MASSIVE amount of potential. There is a formidable all-Bundesliga front line with Marco Reus sandwiched between Serge Gnabry and Timo Werner. You have to love that!

GROUP STANDINGS

Group C is headed by Northern Ireland, who also have a 100 per cent record, but have played one game more than Germany, currently second. The Dutch are six points behind Löw's men. Germany go to Belfast on Monday.

...BUT KOEMAN IS TOO

You may not remember Ronald Koeman as a player, but he was an exceptional goalscoring defender, and the now-Dutch coach got the goal that gave his country victory over Germany in Hamburg in UEFA EURO '88. That's the last time Germany lost at the Volksparkstadion.

AT HOME IN HAMBURG...

Germany are unbeaten in their last nine internationals at the Volksparkstadion, winning nine of them.

LAST TIME THEY MET...

Hoffenheim’s Nico Schulz scored late on as Germany began their UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a 3-2 win against Nations League finalists the Netherlands in Amsterdam. Match report is right here!

DOUBLE DUTCH?
Leroy Sane, Serge Gnaby and Nico Schulz were the goalscoring heroes for Germany when these sides last met in Amsterdam in March. Sane is currently out injured but Gnabry and Schulz will hope to end on the winning side again to put nine points between them and the visitors in the Group C table.

VAN DIJK LOVES SÜLE
