Manchester United’s Memphis Depay helped the Netherlands to victory by scoring two second-half goals to beat Luxembourg 3-1 in a World Cup qualifier, as reported by BBC Sport.

A goal from Arjen Robben after 36 minutes was cancelled out with a penalty scored by Maxime Chanot just before half-time as the teams went into the break on level terms.

Depay’s header and free kick after coming off the bench proved to be the difference as the Netherlands moved into second place in their group on seven points, three behind France who top the table.

The Dutch forward has played just 20 minutes for the Red Devils in the Premier League since the arrival of Jose Mourinho over the summer and his two goals for his nation are his first of the season.

The 22-year-old moved to the North East of England for £25 million from PSV Eindhoven in 2015, making 29 appearances and scoring two goals in his debut season in the English top flight.
