Ronald Koeman’s team started slowly in Berlin, conceding an own goal by Donyell Malen within the first six minutes.

Despite a chance for redemption, Malen missed an opportunity to score midway through the first half.

After a lackluster first half, Koeman’s halftime talk had an immediate impact as Cody Gakpo scored a beautiful equalizer following a quick counter-attack.

However, they struggled to build on this momentum, allowing Austria to regain the lead with a goal from Romano Schmid.

Despite the support from their fans in Berlin, the Netherlands managed to equalize once more through Memphis Depay after a knock-down from Wout Weghorst.

Their joy was short-lived as Marcel Sabitzer scored the winning goal for Austria from a difficult angle.
