UEFA Nations League: Germany 0-3 Netherlands

Rijkaard Voller

Van Dijk was sent home from worldwide duty after his country's 3-0 win over Germany in the UEFA Nations League - but only as a precautionary measure.

Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are on standby to replace Van Dijk should he be unable to make the squad.

Similarly, Van Dijk netted in Holland's 3-0 UEFA Nations League victory over Germany on Saturday, after which the Dutch national team decided not to consider the defender for Tuesday's friendly against neighbours Belgium in Brussels as he continues to recover from a rib injury.

Saturday's loss in Amsterdam was the first time Germany have lost by three goals to the Dutch.

With the German defence in disarray, late goals from Memphis Depay and Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum sealed the win on a golden night for the Oranje at Amsterdam's Johan Cruyff Arena.

These are dark days for the Germans, still reeling from their woeful World Cup display when they crashed out early after finishing bottom of their group.

Man behind 'Cornerstore Caroline' video isn't buying her apology
A woman who called the police on a 9-year-old boy accusing him of sexual assault has earned the nickname, "Cornerstore Caroline". She says she didn't see the footage until civil rights activist Shaun King posted it to his Instagram .

Ryan Babel's header from a corner crashed against the crossbar and Van Dijk converted the rebound.

They now sit bottom of their UEFA Nations League group with one point, behind the Dutch and France - who will be looking to pile the pressure on when they meet the Germans in Paris on Tuesday.

Loews contract runs until 2022, having been extended for two years in May.

Low's side will have a chance to avoid a fourth straight competitive game without a goal when they face France again on Tuesday in Paris.

"We played OK until we conceded and then did not use our chances", Low said.

Depay then hit the crossbar, before Wijnaldum added another in the third minute of stoppage time.
