A last-gasp Memphis Depay strike sealed victory for the Netherlands over Wales, only seconds after Gareth Bale appeared to have earned the visitors an improbable point in Rotterdam.
- Time and date: 19:45 UK, June 14, 2022
- Venue: Rotterdam
- Starting lineups:
- Netherlands: Cillessen; Teze (De Vrij 46), De Ligt, Martins Indi; Hateboer (Dumfries 46), Koopmeiners, F de Jong, Malacia; Janssen (Depay 73), Gakpo, Lang (Bergwijn 73).
- Wales: Hennessey; B Davies, Mepham, Rodon (Gunter 67), Burns (C Roberts 46); Wilson, Smith (Ramsey 63), Ampadu, Thomas; Johnson, James (Bale 70).
The hosts got off to a good start and were rewarded when Vincent Janssen teed up Noa Lang, who sent the defense in two directions before blasting in.
Six minutes later, Cody Gakpo scored the Netherlands' second goal, rolling in after his initial effort was stopped, but Wales' rising star Brennan Johnson quickly cut the deficit in half by converting Harry Wilson's cross.
At the other end, Wayne Hennessey saved Janssen's shot, and the home side appeared to have been punished when Gareth Bale converted from the penalty spot after Tyrell Malacia was ruled to have fouled Connor Roberts.
But the Netherlands took control almost immediately as Depay, who had missed a penalty late in the game against Poland on Saturday, pounced to score his 42nd international goal.
