Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum opened the scoring in this evening’s eagerly anticipated clash between the Netherlands and France.
In the 43rd minute of the tie a brilliant ball into the box from talented youngster Frenkie de Jong found its way towards Ryan Babel, who smashed a shot which was parried away by Hugo Lloris.
Wijnaldum was quick on his feet to react first and fire the Netherlands into a shock lead against the World Champions.
