Germany reach historical low in Netherlands defeat

Comments()
The 2014 World Cup champions have set an unwanted mark with their shutout defeat in Amsterdam

After their 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands on Saturday, Germany have now failed to score in three straight competitive games for the first time in their history.

Virgil van Dijk, Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum all scored as the home side cruised to an easy UEFA Nations League win at Amsterdam Arena. 

The result spoiled a record-setting day for Joachim Low, who claimed the record for most ever matches in charge of Germany

It was also the first time that Netherlands have defeated Germany by a margin of three or more goals.

The last goal Germany scored in a competitive match was Toni Kroos' memorable last-gasp winner against Sweden at the World Cup this summer. 

Since then, Germany fell 2-0 to South Korea to shockingly crash out of the World Cup, and then drew France 0-0 in the Nations League before Saturday's match in Amsterdam.

Germany did, however, manage to defeat Peru 2-1 in a friendly on September 9. 

Low's side will have a chance to avoid a fourth straight competitive game without a goal when they face France again on Tuesday in Paris.
