Latvia 0-1 Holland: Davy Klaassen’s first-half strike keeps Louis van Gaal’s side top of Group G
Davy Klaassen scored the only goal as Holland beat Latvia 1-0 away in Riga on Friday to keep themselves ahead in a tightly contest World Cup qualifying group.
Klaassen was unmarked at the back post to tuck away Memphis Depay‘s corner after 19 minutes for the lone goal of the game, although the Dutch did dominate with almost relentless attacks in the closing 20 minutes and might have won by a larger margin.
Stefan de Vrij and Depay both sent good chances wide in the second half while at the other end of the field, Dutch goalkeeper Justin Bijlow made an important save from a corner in stoppage time to keep his side’s full haul of points intact.
