An evening of draws for the big names, the Germans risk in Budapest, the Netherlands recover Poland but waste a penalty in the final, Belgium falls asleep in the final and suffers the same as Wales

Germany fails to win, remedying the third consecutive 1-1. Holland comeback Poland, but with Depay miss the penalty of a possible 3-2. The third day of the Nations League has come to an end: in the matches on Saturday evening, all the “bigs” of the league draw. A. Hofmann puts the stamp on the 1-1 of the Germans against Hungary, Klaassen and Dumfries respond to the double advantage Polish, signed by Cash and Zielinski. Wales and Belgium drew 1-1, while in the other leagues the goals of the protagonists of the last Serie A abound: Calhanoglu and Malinovskyi open the dances in the victories of Ukraine and Turkey, the Lazio Marusic is decisive in Montenegro-Bosnia (1-1 ).


Neuer and his teammates draw in Hungary and Mancini’s Italy holds the top of Lega A group 3 tightly. In the away match in Budapest, coach Flick relies on forward Werner, supported by Musiala and Havertz. In the first 10 ‘there is fun: Hungary immediately took the lead with a shot from Zsolt Nagy, who uses a Neuer rebound to kick on goal. Three minutes passed and Hofmann equalized the scores: Gulacsi came out of the goalposts, the German took advantage of it, jumps him and supports the net. At 1-1 the pace slows down, before the break Neuer saves the result with a great save on Fiola. In the second half, Germany pushed but wasted: in the 72nd minute Hofmann and Werner did not understand each other and missed a goal that seemed to have already been scored. The Germans thus remain at zero victories in this Nations League, bringing home the third consecutive draw.


The “Italians” De Ligt, Hateboer and Koopmeiners remain on the bench and the Netherlands of Dumfries and De Vrij do not go beyond the draw in the match against Poland. The guests take the field with Bereszynski and Zalewski in the wing, in attack there is Zielinski paired with Piatek. Matty Cash, who in the 18th minute beat Flekken with a right to cross and celebrated his first goal for the national team, was the one to break the deadlock. The 0-2 arrives in the 49th minute. The Dutch defense messes up and lets the opposing strikers escape, to benefit is Zielinski who – served by Frankowski – doubles in an empty net. Five minutes later, the scoreboard says 2-2: Klaassen shortens the distance with an insertion of him, Dumfries enters the area and equalizes on Depay’s assist. The Barcelona striker drags the Netherlands towards the reversal, but in the recovery the appointment with the 3-2 is missing: in the 91 ‘he hits the post with a penalty kick, in the 92’ he tries again with a gored. Skoruspki reaches out and tells him no, putting the signature on the final 2-2.


With Lukaku still knocked out, Belgium launched the challenge to Bale and his teammates by deploying De Bruyne and Trossard behind Batshuayi. Rest time for Hazard, who sits on the bench with Praet and Saelemaekers. Wales resisted for 45 ‘, but on 51’ Tielemans scores 0-1 from a central position. The home team’s equalizer was signed by 21-year-old Brennan Johnson: with a right-footed shot from close range, the Nottingham Forest star made 1-1 in the 86th minute. Roberto Martinez’s national team thus reaches 4 points in group 4, at -3 from the Dutch leaders.


Three goals against Armenia and first place (with full points) in group 1 of league B: Ukraine wins again thanks to goals from Malinovskyi (scoring with a left-handed from the edge), Karavaev and Mykolenko. Browne, Parrott and Obafemi score in Ireland’s 3-0 win against Scotland. In league C, Lithuania is knocked out against the Faroe Islands: Davidsen and Andreasen overturn Cernych’s initial advantage.
