Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk have just sent the Netherlands through to the semi-finals of the Nations League with a 90th minute equaliser against Germany.
Netherlands assistant manager Dwight Lodeweges drew up a plan to get back into the game with Van Dijk up front. This note was passed to the captain and he scored the goal that made it 2-2.
Germany vs. Netherlands match referee Ovidiu Hategan recently lost his mother. Right after the final whistle, VanDijk went towards him to comfort him, while crying. This is beautiful.
