Memphis Depay was on target again as the Netherlands concluded their preparations for Euro 2020 with a comfortable friendly win over Georgia.

Depay, who scored twice in a friendly win over Scotland on Wednesday, slotted a penalty after a foul on the impressive Denzel Dumfries in the box.

Towering striker Wout Weghorst added a second with a neat finish from Depay’s pass for his first international goal.

Ajax teenager Ryan Gravenberch followed up a saved Depay shot to head a third.

The Dutch get their Euro 2020 campaign under way against Ukraine on 13 June.

Ranked 16th in the Fifa world rankings, Frank de Boer’s side are favourites to progress from Group C, which also contains Austria and North Macedonia.
