Watch: Liverpool stars Van Dijk and Wijnaldum score smashers as Netherlands bash Belarus
The Netherlands got their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign off to a winning start on Thursday evening, smashing Belarus 4-0 in the evening's other game in Northern Ireland's group.
While former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay netted twice, Liverpool duo Virgil Van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum both got on the score-sheet.
Depay opened the scores in the first minute and it was Wijnaldum who blasted home the second after finding space in the box midway through the first half.
After a Depay penalty put the game beyond the visitors, Van Dijk bulleted home a close-range header to round off the scoring on 86 minutes.
