GOAL! Netherlands 3 (Dumfries 85) Ukraine 2
The Dutch are ahead again! Dumfries doesn't fluff his lines this time. After the Ukraine give the ball away cheaply, Ake crosses to the back post and Dumfries rises above Zinchenko to power a downward header past Bushchan!

This is anyone's now. Football really is such a glorious thing.

GOAL! Netherlands 2 Ukraine 2 (Yaremchuk 79)
Oh my word, they're level! Malinovskiy absolutely bullets in a whipped ball from the free kick, and Yaremchuk rises near the penalty spot to glance the ball into the corner of the net! From nowhere, we're all square!
78'
Zinchenko wins a free kick for the Ukraine 30 yards from goal. What a change in atmosphere that goul has caused, it's a bit edgy in the Johann Cruyff Arena right now.

What have Shevchenko's side got left in the last 15? We are far from done here folks.

GOAL! Netherlands 2 Ukraine 1 (Yarmolenko 75)
What a pearler from Yarmolenko! He cuts in from the right, plays a one-two with Yaremchuk and then curls a glorious 20-yarder into the top corner past Stekelenburg. Ukraine's captain has dragged them back into it!
72'
Finally a spell for the Ukraine, as they work the ball forwards and across the face of the Dutch area. They tee up a half volley from the edge for Yaremchuk, but it's straight at Stekelenburg.
70'
A sweeping break from the Dutch finds Wijndal on the left. He whips in a menacing cross to the back post, but it's just too far ahead of Weghorst and drifts out of play on the far side.
67'
The Ukraine look stunned here, and you can't blame them. Their opponents are hogging the ball right now.

Lots o' changes. Ake and Wijndal replace Blind and van Aanholt for the Netherlands. For the Ukraine, their first substitute of the night, Marlos, is himself replaced by Shaparenko.

Dutch tails are pointing skywards. De Jong piles forwards now, and wins his side a corner.

What a spell for the Dutch. Here's that opener from Wijnaldum:

It's two! Dumfries causes havoc down the right again, barrelling in to the area on the right from a through ball. He jumps around Mikolenko, who hits the deck, and from the light clash of bodies it breaks to Weghorst, who shoots through Bushchan to double the lead! It's VAR checked for offside as Dumfries carried on running towards goal and near to Buschan, but it stands.
55'
A brief look at goal for Weghorst now, who shifts the ball onto his left in the area but can only spoon it into the hands of Buschan.
