The Netherlands defeated Ukraine 3-2 at Euro 2020 on Sunday on their return to a major tournament for the first time in seven years.
Dutch captain Georginio Wijnaldum scored the opening goal on 52 minutes in Amsterdam and Wout Weghorst added a second before the hour.
Ukraine equalised with two quick goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk, but a Denzel Dumfries header five minutes from time earned Frank de Boer’s side victory.
