England supporter Stacey Williams said: "I may have implied last month that the Nations League sounded like the doomed forerunner to the UN that couldn't even referee a clash between Greece and Albania".

"I think we should be all proud of ourselves - I'm certainly very proud of my team", Van Dijk, the Holland captain said after the match.

Germany head coach Joachim Low admits there will be radical changes to the national team after the Netherlands victory over France relegated them from the top-tier of the UEFA Nations League. The semi-finals of the knockout competition take place on June 5 and 6, with the third-place playoff and final taking place on June 9. "We worked so hard for every game and to get rewards for that is fantastic".

"We went ahead and then let them off the hook".

"This is a learning experience for us and we will have to analyse our performance in the last 10 minutes".

"It's a pity, we had everything under control until the 85th minute and could have gone 3-0 up", said Werner.
