Norway 0-1 Netherlands Highlights

Mark van Bommel’s second-half strike ensured Holland maintained their 100% start to World Cup qualifying at the expense of Norway.

Van Bommel smashed home a volley after 64 minutes in Oslo to make it three wins from three for Oranje and stretch their advantage at the top of Group Nine.

Norway, however, are still waiting for their first win and are now seven points adrift of the leaders.

Holland coach Bert van Marwijk made two changes to the side which saw off Iceland at the weekend. Edwin van der Sar replaced Michel Vorm between the posts while Demy de Zeeuw replaced the injured Nigel de Jong in midfield.

The hosts also made two changes to their starting XI following last Saturday’s goalless draw in Scotland. Morten Gamst Pedersen and Henning Hauger were named in midfield with Fredrik Stromstad and Bjorn Helge Riise dropping to the bench.
