Liverpool handed another worldwide ‘boost’ ahead of Huddersfield clash

Daley Blind

European global football has a handful of truly special games and one of those is undoubtedly between the Netherlands and Germany, a rivalry which dates back to the Second World War and was played out on Saturday with the Dutch emerging as unlikely 2-0 winners. With Neuer in no-man's land, Virgil van Dijk headed into the empty net.

The current worldwide break has been "kinder" to Liverpool than usual, with Virgil van Dijk the latest player to depart from duty as a precaution.

Saturday's loss in Amsterdam was the first time Germany have lost by three goals to the Dutch.

These are dark days for the Germans, still reeling from their woeful World Cup display when they crashed out early after finishing bottom of their group.

It leaves Low's side in danger of relegation in League A Group 1, of which they are bottom, having drawn 0-0 with France in their first game.

Then, Memphis Depay doubled the lead with 3 minutes remaining, after a quick counter-attack.

Earlier Saturday, Munich-based newspaper, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, revealed there is a release clause in Loew's contract, which runs until 2022, allowing either party to end the agreement prematurely.

Low's side will have a chance to avoid a fourth straight competitive game without a goal when they face France again on Tuesday in Paris.

Loew had promised an improved performance from the Germans.

"We played OK until we conceded and then did not use our chances", Low said.

The Dutch went ahead after 30 minutes when Babel out-jumped Germany midfielder Joshua Kimmich to the ball, headed onto the post and Van Dijk pounced on the rebound.

And Wijnaldum added a third soon after.
