Netherlands 3-2 Ukraine Player Ratings: Wijnaldum stars in five-goal thriller

Netherlands produced a thrilling 3-2 success in their Euro 2020 opener against Ukraine, with Gini Wijnaldum an outstanding performer.

Netherlands claimed a stunning 3-2 victory over Ukraine in their Euro 2020 opener, with a late Denzel Dumfries winner the difference between the sides.

The Dutch were the dominant side initially but had to wait until the second half before Gini Wijnaldum's composed finish put them into the lead. A strike from Wout Weghorst seemed to have sealed the win.

Ukraine hit back through Andrii Yarmolenko's stunning long-range strike and levelled as Roman Yaremchuk scored with a diving header.

Dumfries, however, popped up with a late winner.

  • A huge influence as the right wing-back throughout this match. He raided dangerously throughout this game, missing the best chance of the first half and forcing the best save of the tournament in the opening period, too. However, he persisted and grabbed the winner with a fine header in the closing stages.

  • Yaremchuk dragged Ukraine back into the game from nowhere with a goal and assist in the space of a few minutes. Admittedly, his simple assist for Yarmolenko was entirely eclipsed by the quality of the winger's finish, but his diving header seemed to have won his side a point.

  • Quiet in the early stages, Wijnaldum grew in prominence as the match wore on. Broke the game open with a composed finish and was a driving force from the centre of the park, where he was deployed in a more advanced role than the one he typically played for Liverpool.
