Van de Beek levelled immediately after the break when Owen Wijndal’s cross went across the area and he drilled low past Unai Simon.

Sergio Ramos came on in the second half for Spain for his 176th international appearance, which made him the joint most capped European man with Gianluigi Buffon.

In Leipzig, Gian-Luca Waldschmidt’s early strike earned Germany a 1-0 victory in their friendly against the Czech Republic.

Vincenzo Grifo’s double helped Italy to a 4-0 win over Estonia while Poland beat Ukraine 2-0.

Michy Batshuayi’s brace earned Belgium a 2-1 win over Switzerland after Admir Mehmedi’s opener for the visitors.
