0 529

A brace in the second half provided a victory for the dutch army against Senegal. Both teams played their best in the match. In the first half, Senegal displayed brilliantly with their classy defense so that Holland couldn’t convert any shots to the goal.

In the second half, in the 84th minute, Frenkie De jong whips a peach of a ball into the box, and Gakpo with a running header converts it into a magnificent goal. Gakpo exposed his worth in the neediest times, though he was already predicted by the scholars to be the best in forward.
