Virgil van Dijk scored a dramatic late equaliser as Netherlands booked their place in UEFA Nations League Finals with a 2-2 draw in Germany.

Ronald Koeman’s side started the evening knowing a point would see them finish top of Group A1 above France following their 2-0 win over the world champions last Friday, but goals from Tim Werner (9) and Leroy Sane (19) saw already relegated Germany race into a two-goal lead.

France looked in pole position to qualify but with time running out, Quincy Promes gave the Netherlands a lifeline five minutes from time, before captain Van Dijk completed the comeback with an emphatic finish in the 90th minute to seal his side’s place in the last four in Portugal next summer.

They now join England, Portugal and Switzerland in the draw for next summer’s finals, which takes place in Dublin on December 3.
