Gibraltar vs Netherlands Full Match Reports
While the Netherlands might not have matched France’s commanding victory over the weekend, they concluded their triumphant European Championship Qualifying (ECQ) campaign with a resounding 6-0 win against Gibraltar at Portugal’s Estádio Algarve, highlighted by Calvin Stengs securing a hat-trick.
Unlike their early setback on Saturday, Gibraltar managed to withstand the Dutch onslaught until the 10th minute of this encounter. Joey Veerman, orchestrating play in the attacking third, reclaimed possession and found Stengs, who elegantly guided the ball past goalkeeper Dayle Coleing, marking his inaugural international goal. The second goal for the Dutch had a sense of déjà vu, unfolding at the midpoint of the first half. Once again, Veerman played the role of the provider, assisting Mats Wieffer in heading home from Veerman’s well-placed corner.
Despite missed opportunities from Wieffer, Wout Weghorst, and Donyell Malen, Gibraltar succumbed to the third goal in the 38th minute. This time, Quilindschy Hartman’s precise, low cross found its mark with Teun Koopmeiners converting. The second half witnessed Stengs securing his brace and the Netherlands’ fourth, executing a sublime one-two with Malen as he cut in from the right wing and clinically picked his target. The Feyenoord talent completed his hat-trick just after the hour mark, receiving a well-timed pass from Jordan Teze and confidently firing past Coleing.
As the game entered its final phase, Evan De Haro narrowly avoided an own goal from a corner, but the sixth goal materialized 10 minutes before the end. Thijs Dallinga might claim a slight touch on Cody Gakpo’s cross, but the goal was officially credited to Gakpo, securing his third of the qualifiers. The comprehensive victory solidifies Ronald Koeman’s Germany-bound squad, concluding their ECQ journey with six wins from eight matches. Meanwhile, Gibraltar wraps up their campaign as the only team across Europe that failed to register a goal.
