Memphis Depay scored twice and provided assists for Liverpool duo Georginio Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk as the Netherlands thrashed Belarus 4-0 in their opening Group C Euro 2020 qualifier.

The Dutch took a first-minute lead when Depay punished a sloppy backpass before his backheel pass was converted by Wijnaldum in Rotterdam.

The Reds midfielder then earned a penalty from a foul by Mikhail Sivakov.

Depay converted before he crossed for Van Dijk to head in a late fourth.
