Maher suffers defeat on Jong Oranje debutPublished on 14 november 11, 00:00
Maher was given his first start by coach Cor Pot and played off striker up front Nacer Barazite. The AZ midfielder showed great technical skills in the first half in particular and he made the most of a goalkeeping howler. Maher struck a free kick that appeared harmless but the Scottish goalkeeper Mark Ridgers fumbled the high ball into his own net.
In spite of the 1-2 defeat, the Netherlands Under-21 are still on top of qualifying Group 10, with nine points from four games.
