Netherlands 0-1 Mexico, Raul Jimenez converted from the penalty spot in the 66th minute to seal the
game for the visitors at the Johan Cruyff Arena, Amsterdam on Wednesday.
The Dutch were poor although almost snatched an equalizer late on when Memphis Depay hit the bar.
Netherlands play Bosnia in the Nations League on Sunday.
In the absence of Frenkie de Jong, who was an unused substitute, the Netherlands lacked the creative spark
needed in midfield and were unable to create chances.
This left the Mexican defense largely untested. Gini Wjnaldum did not have the best of games either,
and this meant that the Netherlands could not stamp their authority in midfield.
