The Netherlands are still in control of the Nations League group, Group A4, after beating Poland in their penultimate match.

Cody Jakbo met a low ball from Denzel Dumfries inside the penalty area to put the visitors ahead after 13 minutes in Warsaw.

Stephen Bergwijn secured victory for Louis van Gaal’s undefeated team after a curling finish after the hour.
