  • Goal

    Van Nistelrooy (Netherlands) scores!
    Van Nistelrooij gets his hat-trick and it was so easy. Van der Meyde pulled the ball back and Manchester United's leading scorer had all the time he needed to pick his spot.
  • Goal
    65
    F. de Boer (Netherlands) scores!
    Frank de Boer heads in from the subsequent Sneijder corner and Davids can take a lot of satisfaction for his part in initiating the attack. Scotland have not been a patch on the side that won at the weekend. This is turning into a humiliation.

    Miller (in) - McCann (out) (Scotland)
  • Goal
    51
    Van Nistelrooy (Netherlands) scores!
    Van Nistelrooij lofts the ball over Douglas to make sure the Netherlands are going to Portugal. Van der Vaart played the ball to him and he kept his cool as Douglas rushed in.
  • Yellow Card
    47
    Davids (Netherlands) is booked.
    Davids goes down in the box but the referee waves away appeals for a penalty. Wilkie got the ball and Davids is punished for simulation.
  • Substitution
    46
    F. de Boer (in) - Ooijer (out) (Netherlands)
    Advocaat makes a change, determined to keep things solid and ensure the Netherlands go to Portugal while Vogts has made two changes in a bid to turn the game around.

  • Goal
    37
    Van Nistelrooy (Netherlands) scores!
    Ruud van Nistelrooij scores the home side's third. Surely there is too much for Scotland to do now. Again Sneijder put in the free kick and the Manchester United FC forward was there to head in.
  • Goal
    32

    André Ooijer puts Holland into the lead on aggregate. Sneijder sweeps over the free kick from the left and Ooijer heads in from point-blank range.

    Dickov (Scotland) is booked.
    Paul Dickov was late there on Wilfred Bouma and that is the third yellow card for Scotland already.
