Germany went ahead in the ninth minute but Netherlands came back with two goals to take the lead before eventually winning 4-2. The hosts preferred to sit back and try and hit the Oranje on the counter, but it was not a very successful ploy.
Koeman insisted that the better team won and was happy with the resilience his team showed, especially in the second half, to get the all important win.

"The team that has done the most to win has earned it," Koeman said, according to Goal.
"The Germans also had a number of good chances, but I found Germany waiting [for opportunities].
"In the first half we were not dangerous, we built it up a bit better in the second half. It turned out well.
