That is a stunning pass from Memphis for Wijnaldum. Dream pass. Weak foot, bent around 3 defenders. Netherlands handing Germany an L in Germany.

That Wijnaldum assist was beautiful. Unselfish, but it also the much harder option. It’s an off-balance ‘scoop’ rather than a pass.

Ginious! Dutch look seriously good. Bossed this game from start to finish.
