    FT: Netherlands 2-0 Norway! The Netherlands celebrate as they reach the FIFA World Cup finals, while Norway's crestfallen players are out of contention! Despite posing almost no threat on goal throughout, this was an anxious, unconvincing win, launched by Bergwijn's emphatic late finish and sealed by Depay's last-gasp close-range finish. An unremarkable performance ends in a memorable night as Oranje reach next year's showpiece as group winners!

    GOAL for hosts! Memphis Depay... The Netherlands are going to the FIFA World Cup finals! Norway have no-one at the back as their opponents break quickly from a corner, Bergwijn charging into the penalty area through the centre and playing in the unmarked Depay to his right, who fires in. Van Gaal offers a thumbs up from on high!
  • 88'
    Netherlands sub: Nathan Ake on for Danjuma.

    Norway sub: Olsen on for Pedersen.
de Países Bajos en el 84'
  • 84'
    GOAL for Netherlands! The hosts have done it! The hosts have done it! This is a terrific team move, starting in midfield with Blind and spreading play briskly to Danjuma in a central position on the edge of the penalty area, who lays the ball off to Bergwijn in front of goal on the right. The Tottenham striker, who has been the provider so many times from the right wing tonight, lashes an unerring finish into the roof of the net. That could give the Netherlands victory in this group!

  • 74'
    Norway double sub: Joshua King on for Hauge and Gregersen on for Normann.
  • 73'
    Netherlands sub: De Roon on for Klaassen.
  • 72'
    Odegaard is penalised for handball.
  • 66'
    Excellent work by Bergwijn, who collects the ball outside the penalty area on the right and races past Meling, standing up a hanging cross for Danjuma beyond the far post. The forward can only lash the tricky opportunity into the stand – he would, perhaps, have had more success attempting to find a team-mate.
  • 65'
    What an untapped opportunity for the home side: Depay passes too late, allowing Strandberg to intercept. Meanwhile, Turkey are now ahead against Montenegro. Norway must, therefore, win if they still want to have a chance of reaching the FIFA World Cup.
  • 60'
    Van Gaal suddenly appears on the screens in the stadium; he seems to be asking for a substitution via his walkie-talkie. He is known for making substitutions in the 60th minute and that is coming up now.
  • 57'
    Normann concedes a free-kick for a foul on Klaassen.
  • 51'
    Thorstvedt concedes a free-kick for a foul on Dumfries.
  • 46'
    The second half begins in Rotterdam!
  • 45'
    Norway HT double sub: Kristian Thorstvedt on for Morten Thorsby and Jens Petter Hauge on for Solbakken.

  • 43'
    Sorloth is cautioned by the referee after fouling F. De Jong.
  • 41'
    Elyounoussi concedes a free-kick for a foul on Dumfries.
  • 40'
    Depay has an attempt on goal. Terrific technique from the demonstrably confident Depay, turning to curl in a volley as the ball falls to him from a considerable distance out after Norway partially clear a cross. Nyland dives to take, but that would have been a sensational goal.
  • 38'
    Thorsby is penalised for a foul on Dumfries and is shown a yellow card.
  • 27'
    Close! Danjuma breaks free inside the penalty area on the left and fires a shot wide of the far post.
  • 26'
    Bad news for Norway fans: Turkey have equalised in Montenegro, where 26 minutes have been played. That means they are now on course to finish second on goal difference!
  • 22'
    Depay delivers the corner. This is from the left. Depay sees his initial cross returned back to him, and Norway head his second delivery clear.
  • 17'
    Depay is flagged for offside.
  • 15'
    Netherlands find space on the right near the penalty area again, Dumfries whipping in a delivery which Depay attempts to meet with an audacious back-flick at the far post. Nyland gathers comfortably.
  • 13'
    Bergwijn crosses to the far post from the right flank with the outside of his boot, finding Depay rising above Strandberg. His effort bounces tamely in front of Nyland.
  • 12'
    Elyounoussi is penalised for a foul on Bergwijn.
  • 10'
    In the opening moments we have seen nice long passes from the home team, who are using their possession. Norway are keeping the spaces closed at the moment. Bergwijn has already put in some useful crosses, without testing Nyland yet.
  • 7'
    Sorloth is penalised for a foul on Van Dijk.
  • 4'
    Hanche-Olsen commits a foul.
  • 1'
    Netherlands get us going from right to left in orange! Norway are in light blue and withe! Here we go in this crucial qualifying match!
