Jasper Cillessen was called into action as the Netherlands shot-stopper produced a super save to deny Sebastien from close range.

The home side continued to threaten upon resumption in the second half, as Robben went close to scoring in the opening 10 minutes.

The Dutch eventually grabbed a third goal in the 62nd minute as poor clearance landed at the feet of Georginio Wijnaldum, who calmly slotted home with a smart finish.

It was 4-0 in the 70th minute when Quincy Promes rose well to head home Stefan De Vrij impressive cross from the right.

Netherlands nearly grabbed a fifth goal in the 76th minute through De Vrij, who managed to head wide of the upright from close range.

Dick Advocaat's charges managed to see out the closing stages with relative ease as they ran out 4-0 winners.
