International round-up: Krul keeps clean sheet for Netherlands

27 March 2021

Tim Krul kept a clean sheet in his second appearance of this international break on Saturday evening as Netherlands bounced back to record their first win of 2022 World Cup qualifying.

After defeat to Turkey in their opening qualifying match on Wednesday, Krul appeared between the sticks to ensure Oranje notched their first win of the campaign in front of 5,000 supporters at Ajax's Amsterdam Arena.

Steven Berghuis and Luuk de Jong scored the goals for Frank de Boer's team as they beat Latvia 2-0.

Elsewhere, Danel Sinani played 90 minutes to help Luxembourg to a famous win over the Republic of Ireland in Dublin.


A superb long-range effort from Gerson Fernandes fired Luxembourg to victory in their first World Cup qualifier of the break.

Earlier in the day, Norway were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Turkey with Orjan Nyland not named in the squad.
