The Netherlands closed in on qualification for Euro 2012 with a 2-0 win over Finland on Tuesday


Kevin Strootman latched onto Wesley Sneijder’s chipped through ball to scored the first goal with a delicately placed flick in the 30th minute.

Finland’s Perparim Hetemaj was sent off for a second booking in the 60th before Luuk de Jong wrapped up the win in injury time with a deftly sidefooted finish.

The Dutch maintained their 100 percent record in Group E, moving onto 24 points from eight games. Finland has nine points.
