Virgil van Dijk consoles referee who lost his mother before Netherlands’ draw with Germany

Virgil van Dijk proved his class both on and off the field as the Netherlands reached the Nations League semi-finals with a dramatic comeback against Germany.

เว็บ บอล ออนไลน์ Timo Werner and Leroy Sane gave Germany a two-goal advantage inside 19 minutes at the Veltins-Arena before late goals from Quincy Promes and Van Dijk sealed a crucial 2-2 draw for the visitors. The Liverpool defender took up a more advanced position as the match reached its crescendo and latched onto Tonny Vilhena’s cross in the 90th minute, volleying home in style past Manuel Neuer. It emerged before the game that the referee on the night, Ovidiu Hategan, had just lost his mother but had made the decision to officiate regardless – and Van Dijk approached him after the final whistle.

‘That man broke down, stood with tears in his eyes because เว็บ บอล ออนไลน์ he had just lost his mother,’ Van Dijk said in the aftermath of the draw. ‘I wished him strength and said that he had blown well. It’s a small thing, but maybe it helps him.’

The draw means the Netherlands finish top of Group A1, above World Cup winners France, and join England, Portugal and Switzerland in the semi-finals. Germany, meanwhile, have been relegated to second tier and will be among the second seeds for Euro 2020 qualification if Portugal lose to Poland on Tuesday night.

Joachim Low criticised his players for failing to kill off the Netherlands when they had the chance after the break. ‘I am a bit disappointed by the result but overall I saw more positives than negatives,’ he said. เว็บ บอล ออนไลน์
