Ronald Koeman has proudly declared Netherlands to have taken "enormous steps" after they beat world champions France 2-0 on Friday in the UEFA Nations League.
The three-time World Cup finalists have failed to qualify for the last two major international tournaments, but have enjoyed a resurgence under Koeman.
A draw on Monday against Germany will be enough for them to finish top of their Nations League group due to their superior head to head record with France.
Former Southampton and Everton boss Koeman said: "This was a complete match at the very highest level.
"I was not expecting a perfect match from our side but that's really what it was. We were very, very good.
"I was surprised by the France line-up and the way they played, but our match was perfect. We dominated the match for 90 minutes.
"I also did not expect that this team would be as far in their reading of a match. We have shown on such a night that we have made enormous steps. From the beginning to the end we played really well."
