Netherlands Crush Bulgaria to keep World Cup Dream Alive

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Propper, one of three players brought in by cach Dick Advocaat after last week's defeat to Europe's second strongest team, France, scored his first international goal early just six minutes after kick-off.

Dutch captain Arjen Robben doubled Netherlands's advantage after the break, before Bulgaria's Georgi Kostadinov got the faintest of touches on Ivelin Popov's free-kick to get Bulgaria back into the match.

Propper then headed in with 10 minutes remaining to secure a win that gave Netherlands some revenge after their 2-0 loss to Bulgaria in March, which proved to be the last straw prior to the sacking of former coach Danny Blind.

Netherlands move above Bulgaria into third in Group A, but still face a tough task to qualify, as Sweden – who defeated Belarus – sit three points clear of them with only two games to play.
