The Netherlands will be once again at the World Cup following an eight-year hole, compelling Norway star Erling Haaland to delay until no less than 2026 to make his introduction on the greatest stage. The Netherlands clinched the final automatic place in European qualifying for the 2022 World Cup as late goals from Steven Bergwijn and Memphis Depay sealed a 2-0 win over Norway on Tuesday, with Turkey and Ukraine grabbing play-off spots.
The Dutch, with injured coach Louis van Gaal watching from the stands in Rotterdam. Only needed a point to top Group G and came through a nervy encounter to finish two points clear of second-placed Turkey, who pipped Norway to a play-off spot. Tottenham winger Bergwijn smashed Arnaut Danjuma’s cross into the top corner with six minutes left at De Kuip. The victory was played behind closed doors after a partial lockdown was re-introduced last week due to an increase in cases of Covid-19.
Turkey overtook Norway into second place in Group G, winning 2-1 in Montenegro to enter the European playoffs in March. Ukraine also won away, 2-0 at Bosnia-Herzegovina, to join Turkey as unseeded teams who will be on the road again in the semifinals of the playoffs.
