With Ireland's poor return of a solitary point in their three games so far, they were always very likely to face relegation to League C, thereby making their Euro 2020 hopes all the more hard. The Dutch need a draw to win the group.

"I also did not expect that this team would be as far in their reading of a match".

"It's the first time with these guys, I'll compliment them, it's a learning opportunity for us, we're not together for so long, Germany is at full strength, I'm proud of the boys".

Holland - who missed out on World Cup qualification - head to Germany on Monday knowing a draw or a win would see them leapfrog France and seal their place in the last four of the Nations League finals next June.

Now Ronald Koeman's men need only a draw in Germany on Monday to secure the top spot and progress to the semi-finals, signalling their resurgence since their failure to qualify for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. "We were very, very good", said Koeman.

Asked if he hopes to return to the full Netherlands squad next time, Kluivert said, "That's not for me to say, but I'll do my best to make it as hard as possible for the trainer, and of course I hope to play football in the big Dutch national team".

France looked outclassed for much of the match.

"This win shows the spirit of the team, the quality of the players we have", said Depay.

They would have been beaten by a bigger margin had it not been for a string of saves from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

"There was one team out there with a lot of desire and we didn't have enough", said Deschamps.

"It shows that we have a bright future, we have to continue like this".

Deschamps, whose saw his side's 15-match unbeaten run ended, added: 'We're not going to take refuge behind absences, the high level has requirements and we did not meet them.

Captain Lloris says France must now cross their fingers for a favour from Germany during the final group fixture.

"There was a clear gulf between the sides and they deserved the win".

Wijnaldum should have scored in just the second minute, before a French player even touched the ball, but he fired straight at Lloris after a clever pass from Depay. "We lost to a Dutch team that played very well and we did not play well".
