Georginio Wijnaldum printed his name on the scoresheet in style on Saturday as the Netherlands beat Germany 3-0 in their UEFA Nations League clash.
The Liverpool man wrapped up the win in the 93rd minute when he hoodwinked Jerome Boateng on route to an excellent solo goal.
A drop of the shoulder to leave the defender on his backside was followed by a bursting run into the box and a clinical low finish into the bottom corner.
It served as welcomed relief following a second half of sustained pressure from the Germans, not to mention a perfect way for the midfielder to surpass 50 caps.
Here’s a look at Wijnaldum’s late strike…

Virgil van Dijk opened the scoring in the 30th minute when he headed home the rebound from Ryan Babel’s effort as it struck off the bar.
Former Manchester United man Memphis Depay added a second in the 86th minute as Joachim Löw’s men were punished for their wastefulness in the final third.
Wijnaldum rubbed salt in the wounds late in injury time as he resigned Boating to a similar moment of humiliation to the one so famously handed to him by Lionel Messi in the Champions League back in 2015.
His moment of individual ingenuity in the final third also hinted at the value of his attacking prowess on Merseyside amid Liverpool’s current struggle for midfield creativity.
Jurgen Klopp will now be keen to see both Wijnaldum and Van Dijk emerge unscathed from Tuesday’s friendly with Belgium.
