Memphis Sets Multiple Netherlands Assists Records after Estonia Win

Memphis Depay has set multiple records for assists with the Netherlands after the Dutch defeated Estonia 4-0 in Euro 2020 qualifying

Depay grabbed a goal and two assists on the night as the Dutch cruised to an easy away win in Tallinn.

The 25-year-old notched an assist on his side’s second goal in the 47th minute, which came courtesy of Ryan Babel, before assisting on the away’s side’s fourth in the 87th minute through Georginio Wijnaldum.

Depay now has 17 assists for the Netherlands this decade, passing Wesley Sneijder on 16 for the most since 2010.

The attacker also has seven assists in 2019 for the Netherlands, becoming the first player to tally that many in a calendar year since Rafael van der Vaart in 2010.
