Depay On Fire As Netherlands Beat Luxembourg 3-1



Memphis Depay was the star of the moment as Netherlands beat minnows Luxembourg on Sunday in a World Cup qualifying match.

The Manchester United player came on as a substitute scoring a second-half brace for a 3-1 win in Luxembourg city.

Veteran Arjen Robben had put the Dutch ahead in the 36th, but 130th-ranked Luxembourg levelled on the stroke of half-time with a penalty from Maxime Chanot.

The visitors were without the influential Robben after the break as the Bayern Munich winger seemingly picked up yet another injury, a big loss given that Robben had scored five times in the four internationals.

The 22-year-old then came close again and eventually clinched victory with a curling free-kick with six minutes left.
