WATCH: Van Dijk volley sends Netherlands to Nations League Finals

Van Dijk stunner sends the Netherlands through to the UEFA Nations League Finals

The Premier League and other top divisions from around Europe may have been put on hold this weekend due to the international break but that doesn't mean there's been a shortage in drama. The much talked about UEFA Nations League has been the most watched tournament over the weekend and despite it being a controversial new addition to an already bustling football calendar - it has provided a new competitive edge to what would be meaningless friendlies and provided some memorable moments.

We saw Harry Kane's late winner raise the roof at Wembley Stadium and on Monday the Netherlands produced some heroics of their own. They went into their crunch clash with already relegated Germany knowing that just a point would secure their passage through to the Nations League Finals in Portugal next summer and they certainly did it the hard way - coming back from 2 goals down to snatch a draw. An 85th minute Quincy Promes effort left them chasing the game with just minutes remaining and there up stepped their skipper to save the day.

Virgil van Dijk may be a centre half by trade but we all know how good he is technically, something he proved in the dying seconds of the game. The Liverpool defender hit a beautifully struck volley which flew past the onlooking Manuel Neuer into the back of the net and sent both the Netherlands players and supporters into delirium. Van Dijk's stock has risen drastically over the last couple of years and that proves that he's very much a big game player.
