Netherlands are continuing to push forward as Depay fires the ball into the side netting. An equaliser feels imminent but Netherlands' defence is extremely high up the pitch.

66' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Depay spins past Glik before getting a ball into Klaassen at the near post, but he fires it into the side netting! Klaassen, once again, ends up on the floor.

64' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

GREAT SAVE! A fabulous save from Fabianski! Depay has a low shot which was heading into the bottom corner, but the West Ham goalkeeper does excellently to push away! Fine stop.

62' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Another quick counter-attack from Poland as Zielinski lays the ball off to Piatek but he rifles his effort over the bar. He perhaps should have done better there.

60' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Krychowiak, who is on a yellow, commits another heavy challenge and Netherlands have a free-kick which Depay plays short to Stengs, but his cross into the area is acrobatically cleared by Kedziora. The following corner comes to nothing.

Poland need to win and Italy must lose against Bosnia tonight if they are to qualify for the Nations League finals. Italy currently lead 1-0...

53' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Kedziora fouls Depay right on the edge of the box. The Lyon forward powers a cross in which Reca gets a touch on to deny Hateboer a certain goalscoring opportunity.

52' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Hateboer's cross goes out for a Netherlands corner which Poland almost spring a counter-attack straight away from with Klich playing a long ball up, but Jozwiak is blocked off expertly by De Jong. The pace of Poland's attack has exposed Holland's slow backline all evening.

50' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Zielinski leaves Klaassen on the floor before its worked to Reca on the left flank. He squares the ball into the area but Krul puts it behind for a Poland corner which Blind heads clear.

47' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

BIG CHANCE! De Jong squares the ball along for Stengs but it comes to noting as Poland counter-attack with pace... it eventually falls to Placheta but he blasts his shot wide! That was a great chance for the Norwich City winger but he gets his shot all wrong.

  • 2nd Half
46' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Here we go... the second half has begun! Poland have brought on Piatek for Lewandowski.

  • End of 1st Half
45+2' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

HALF-TIME! Poland lead at the break after a very open first half thanks to a brilliant solo goal from 22-year-old Derby County winger Jozwiak. Netherlands have had plenty of chances, but have been unable to make their chances count. Second half coming up!

45'

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

TWO minutes of added time at the end of the first half.

42' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Jozwiak falls down under a challenge from Stengs and Poland have a free-kick. It's not been the best evening for the AZ Alkmaar forward so far, but there's plenty of time - and probably opportunities - left in this game...

40' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Wijnaldum lays off to Depay who has a low shot on goal from just outside the area, but its easy for Fabianski who can get down and clutch the ball to his chest.

38' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Blind's ball into the box is flicked on by De Vrij but Poland can clear. Netherlands are creating chances but they are leaving themselves very exposed defensively and Poland's pacey outlets Placheta and Jozwiak on the flanks have had plenty of joy as a result.

36' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Hateboer collides with Krychowiak and Poland have a free-kick in Netherlands' half but it comes to nothing.

34' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Malen drifts in and fires a shot on goal on the edge of the penalty box, but its over the bar. We've had ten shots already in this match, but only two have hit the target in total (one each). Sloppy finishing on display.

33' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Zielinski directs a cross into the area with the Poles on the front foot once again down the right flank, but Krul matches it and claims.

30' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

An ambitious attempt from Placheta as he cuts inside and lets rip a strike which flies well over the bar from just outside the box.

27' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

CHANCE! Depay plays delightful flick over the Poland backline with his back to goal and it finds Stengs, but the ball is taken away from him by a Netherlands defender just in the nick of time!

25' 

Interesting...

24' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Van Aanholt plays a dangerous cross into the box but Depay cannot reach it. Stengs then has a cross/shot which flies high and wide. This game has been so open it is difficult to say who is on top. It is end-to-end!

22' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Blind has an attempt from the edge of the box, but he slips over as he shoots but it bounces into the arms of Fabianski. An audacious attempt for sure.

20' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

CHANCE! Placheta plays the ball low into the area and Jozwiak is there waiting to poke it in, but Krul gets there just in time to claim.

19' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Some good defending from Zielinski as he blocks off Hateboer and allows the ball to run out for a Poland goal-kick. The hosts will be very happy with their display so far, although Netherlands have had a few gilt-edged chances.

17' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

OFF THE POST! A through ball down the flank finds Placheta, completely bypassing Blind, and he closes in on goal before firing a shot aiming for the near post, but it clatters off the woodwork! This is such an open match.

  • Grzegorz Krychowiak

ANOTHER CHANCE MISSED! Malen plays a delightful cross into the box and Stengs has a go with a free header, but it's horribly mistimed and it flies wide.

14' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Another big chance for Netherlands as Depay lofts the ball right into the path of Klaassen in the area, but he cannot extend his leg out far enough to make clean contact! Netherlands are piling the pressure on now.

12' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

A HUGE MISS! Van Aanholt plays a brilliant through ball and finds Malen... he has the goal at his mercy but his shot is straight at Fabianski! A big chance blown.

10' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

A fine run down the left flank from Depay and he plays a dangerous box low into the penalty box, but Fabianski is there to parry away.

8' 

POLAND 1-0 NETHERLANDS

Poland have been dominant so far, they have had the majority of the possession and Netherlands have done little to threaten Fabianski in goal.
