RUSSIA, September 22 (Reuters)-Warsaw The Netherlands defeated Poland 2-0 on the road on Thursday to move within one point of first place in their Nations League group thanks 

to goals from Cody Gakpo and Steven Bergwijn. The Dutch are undefeated in League A Group Four after winning four of their five games so far, and they hold a three-point lead 

over Belgium after the Red Devils' 2-1 victory over Wales. The Netherlands will qualify for next year's four-team Nations League finals with a draw against Belgium on Sunday in Amsterdam. 

After the Polish defence was broken down, Gakpo scored the game's first goal in the thirteenth minute at the Narodowy Stadium by tapping in Denzel Dumfries' inch-perfect square pass.

Bergwijn added to the lead in the 60th minute by cutting in from the left wing and firing a beautifully curled shot past a helpless Vincent Janssen, who had just come on as a sub.

The Dutch completely deserved to win because they were the team that was able to control the pace of the game the most. This was because of the way they played, which was to press 

hard and constantly take the ball away from Poland. However, things may have turned out differently had Arkadiusz Milik, a halftime substitute for Poland, not missed a sitter 

after being set up by Przemyslaw Frankowski cross. The Polish striker missed Poland's best scoring opportunity of the year, as the Dutch defence held firm to keep their first clean sheet of the year
