Lens double helps Oranje crush Hungary

Hungary 1-4 Netherlands
Louis van Gaal's side made it two from two in Group D, as a double from Jeremain Lens helped them cruise to victory in Budapest.

The Netherlands made it two wins from two in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group D as two goals from Jeremain Lens helped them to victory against Hungary in Budapest.

Bruno Martins Indi and substitute Klaas-Jan Huntelaar also contributed to the Dutch total, rendering Balázs Dzsudzsák's early penalty for the hosts a distant memory by the end.

Both teams found the net during the opening exchanges as just three minutes in Luciano Narsingh broke down the right and crossed for Lens who placed a looping header over Ádám Bogdán. Sándor Egervári's home side hit back within four minutes when captain Zoltán Gera was felled in the penalty area and Dzsudzsak slotted the resultant penalty past Maarten Stekelenberg.

However, parity did not last long as a Wesley Sneijder free-kick on 19 minutes was flicked into the net by Feyenoord defender Martins Indi. The Oranje were proving the more fluent side and it was no surprise when they extended their lead early in the second period with Lens making no mistake from close range. The visitors were in cruise control and added a fourth with 16 minutes left as substitute Huntelaar tapped in after rounding Bogdán to secure maximum points for Louis van Gaal's side.
