Reus and Gundogan cut Holland open as Nico Schulz steals late winner for Germany

Hoffenheim's Nico Schulz has stole a late match winner for Germany as Jogi Low's side escaped from Amsterdam with a 3-2 win.

Leroy Sane opened the scoring after 15 minutes with a well taken volley before Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry then extended the visitors lead with an excellent goal.

Mathijs de Ligt pulled one back for Holland with a header just after half-time before Lyon winger Memphis Depay equalised following some great build-up play but Schulz was on hand to slide home the winner after some great work from substitutes Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus.

Both players could consider themselves quite unlucky to start given their form with their respective clubs Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund but they made their impact known in the second-half with some very slick interplay that left Schulz all alone in the box to finish.

Both sides currently sit behind Northern Ireland in Group C following the Green and White Army's 2-1 win over Belarus in Belfast.
