Peru loses to the Netherlands


16:22 | Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Sep. 6.

The Netherlands claimed a 2-1 victory against Peru on Thursday at Amsterdam-based Johan Cruyff Arena.

The Dutch goals were scored by Memphis Depay in the 60th and 83rd minutes.

Previously, midfielder Pedro Aquino's header had served to make the game's first goal in the 13th minute. 

Led by former soccer player Ronald Koeman, the orange squad managed to show a good collective effort against a rival that could not maintain the level displayed in the first half.

This match marked Peru's first friendly following its World Cup participation, as well as 34-year-old Wesley Sneijder's farewell from the Dutch national team.

Starting Lineups

Peru: Gallese, Advíncula, Santamaría, Ramos, Trauco, Loyola, Cueva, Yotun, Aquino, Carrillo, Farfán.
The Netherlands: Cillessen, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Blind, Wijnaldum, Strootman, Tete, Babel, Vormer, Sneijder, Depay.
