Two late goals propel Holland into the Final Four

Netherlands’ defender Virgil van Dijk celebrates during the UEFA Nations League match against Germany in Gelsenkirchen

However, it just wasn't to be with Quincy Promse offering hope in the 85th minute and Van Dijk completing the comeback with a brilliant volley.

"I know I am", he said after the Dutch join England, Switzerland and Portugal in the Nations League's last four.

After failing to qualify for two consecutive major tournaments, the Netherlands was widely considered the favourite for relegation in the Nations League when drawn against Germany and France in January.

Ok, the Liverpool man was not a million miles from goal.

"Our focus however is now like it was before - exclusively on qualifying for the European Championship, where we want to send a strong team out". As we nudge towards 2019, Holland have their greatest chance yet of proving to the world that they're a force to be reckoned with once more.

The German's lightning-quick young frontline, nicknamed "the moped gang", initially looked promising and lived up to their tag as 22-year-olds Werner and Sane, plus Serge Gnabry, 23, terrorised the Dutch defence with their speed, especially in the first half.

Michael Rourke said Shanann Watts was strangled, but her lack of significant injuries suggested that her death came slowly. Chris Watts is scheduled to be in a Colorado, court Monday morning at 10 a.m. -which is 12 p.m.in Eastern Standard Time.

The Dutch side, which had been underperforming for several years and missed the summer's World Cup jamboree in Russian Federation, came into Group A1 as heavy underdogs, facing France and Germany, the winners of the last two World Cups.

"I'm certainly disappointed with the result, but over the whole season I've seen more positives than negative", said Germany head coach Joachim Loew.

"In this year, which overall has been very disappointing for us, we want to put on a good show for the fans on Monday in Gelsenkirchen".

It took just nine minutes for already-relegated Germany to go up on the scoreboard, with Werner controlling on his chest and firing past Jasper Cillessen.

Again, there was little on when Toni Kroos floated in a long pass to Sane, who stumbled slightly, but managed to win the ball and fired home a shot which clipped the boot of a defender as it sailed past Cillessen.
