Netherlands' Georginio Wijnaldum celebrates scoring their first goal with teammates.

Les Bleus, though, suffered their first defeat since being crowned world champions in Russian Federation in the summer - and their first competitive loss since June 2017 - when Georginio Wijnaldum helped Holland to a 2-0 win at De Kuip.

"I also did not expect to be able to read the whole match so well". "We will continue to make room for our young players and to gradually integrate them into the national team".

"This win shows the spirit of the team, the quality of the players we have", said Depay.

The Germans beat Russian Federation 3-0 in a friendly on Thursday, with youngsters Leroy Sane, Niklas Suele and Serge Gnabry scoring the goals, and Loew insisted his side has a bright future. "This is just the start".

"There was a team in front of us with a lot of envy and we were not good enough", Deschamps was quoted as saying on the French Football Federation website.

After their 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Dutch in October, Low bemoaned his side's performance, saying they "broke apart" after suffering their sixth defeat in 10 games. "We weren't at the races and didn't show enough".

France midfielder Steven Nzonzi misjudged a header which fell right into Ryan Babel's path inside the six-yard box.

Asked if he hopes to return to the full Netherlands squad next time, Kluivert said, "That's not for me to say, but I'll do my best to make it as hard as possible for the trainer, and of course I hope to play football in the big Dutch national team". The score could have been more flattering for the Netherlands. "We know what we have to do", added Deschamps.

At the same time, the Dutch defense held Mbappe in check.

First Lloris pushed away Depay's stinging free-kick in the 73rd minute, then two minutes later the Spurs man saved his bamboozled defenders with two smart saves from the striker in a matter of seconds.

France, who have now played all of their Nations League group games, will turn their attentions to a friendly with Uruguay, scheduled to take place in Paris' Stade de France on Tuesday night.

However De Jong, picked out by Deschamps on Thursday as one to watch for the Netherlands, helped his side seal the points when he was bundled down in the area by Moussa Sissoko with seconds left.
