European Under 17 Championship: Germany 0-2 Holland

Rekik celebrates his opening goal

Holland have secured a two goal victory over their highly-fancied German opponents to top Group B early on in Serbia.

In 2009, Germany beat Holland in the final but this time the tide had turned as two second-half goals saw Holland claim the win.

The first half was somewhat disrupted by a series of high winds preventing both teams from producing an exciting array of balls.

Ajax’s recent signing Nick de Bondt made some promising runs throughout the first half although it was Bov de Jong in the Holland goal that was doing all the work, in particularly tipping over an effort from German forward Okan Aydin.

Karim Rekik grabbed the opening goal ten minutes into the second-half. The centre-back fired in a powerful header from a Vilhena set-piece.

Kyle Ebecilio scored the final goal late on in the match and secured the win for the Dutch.

Holland will now face Romania on Friday knowing that a win will send them through to the next round whilst Germany will face Czech Republic in an attempt to get their tournament back on track.
