The Netherlands has returned to third place in Group 1 of the Nations League. Poland held Italy on a 0-0 draw in its own country and is thus taking place two from Oranje again. In Group 3, France and Portugal also held each other in balance: 0-0.
Poland – Italy 0-0Poland confined itself to stopping the Italians at the Energa Gdansk Stadium. The team of coach Roberto Mancini was allowed to have the ball, but did not know much good to do with it. In the entire match, La Squadra Azzurra came to only two shots on target. Poland disrupted the game with the necessary violations and also held up in the second half.
The Dutch team will compete against Italy in Bergamo on Wednesday at 20.45. The men of Frank de Boer continue to participate fully in the Nations League group with a good result.
France – Portugal 0-0Neither was scored in France against Portugal. Both teams took up with the big names on the pitch, but that was actually what it was said. The teams kept each other well balanced and on both sides of the field there were small chances to open the score.
After rest, the game image remained the same, but in the final phase France took the initiative. Les Bleus did not win a goal, while Portugal was close to the winning hit just before time via Cristiano Ronaldo. Portugal continues to be the leading position in Group 3. The team of trainer Fernando Santos has seven points. As much as France, but the target balance of the Portuguese is better.
