Co-hosts the Netherlands ended world champions France's 14-match unbeaten run with a 3-2 victory wich had the look of a rehearsal for the Euro 2000 final. The Dutch trailed twice but won with goals from Patrick Kluivert, Frank de Boer and Boudewijn Zenden. France's scorers were Christophe Dugarry and David Trezeguet. With both teams already qualified for the quarter-finals, only honour and the leadership of Group D was at stake. The Dutch duly topped the group and go on to play Yugoslavia in Rotterdam on Sunday while France meet Spain the same day in Bruges. Both could meet again in the final on July 2.
