The Netherlands bounced back from their disappointing defeat to Norway in their last Euro 2024 qualifier with a comfortable 6-0 win over Gibraltar on Tuesday night.

Memphis Depay scored a hat-trick, while Steven Bergwijn, Davy Klaassen and Donyell Malen also got on the scoresheet for the Dutch.

The win puts the Netherlands top of Group G, two points ahead of Norway and three ahead of Turkey.

The Netherlands started the game brightly and took the lead in the 11th minute when Bergwijn cut inside from the left and fired a low shot into the bottom corner.

Depay doubled the lead in the 22nd minute with a superb free-kick that curled into the top corner.

The Dutch continued to dominate and scored three more goals in the second half.

Depay completed his hat-trick in the 54th minute, Klaassen added a fourth in the 62nd minute, and Malen scored the final goal of the game in the 78th minute.
