Little happened in Amsterdam on Wednesday, as understaffed Netherlands and Germany sides played to a scoreless draw in their international friendly.

With Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira, Holger Badstuber, Jerome Boateng, Mario Gomez and Miroslav Klose all sidelined, Joachim Loew had to do without the vast majority of his Germany first team during the match.

Louis van Gaal's Netherlands side were also without big names, with Wesley Sneijder and Robin van Persie absent, and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar rested for the full 90 minutes.

Neither side played at full pace on the evening, and the result was a very appropriate 0-0 draw. There were a few narratives to take from the game, however. Read on for a full analysis.
