The visitors were without the influential Robben after the break as the Bayern Munich winger seemingly picked up yet another injury, a big loss given that Robben had scored five times in the four internationals.

But Depay, who replaced Wesley Snijder, then came on for the second half, headed the second in the 58th minute by heading home a cross fromDaley Blind.
