Michael O'Neill says he is "devastated" as Northern Ireland slumped to a 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands after conceding three goals in the last 10 minutes.

In the space of 15 minutes Northern Ireland saw dreams of a historic victory, given to them by Josh Magennis' 75th-minute header, become hopes of a vital point and then turn to dust in a 3-1 loss.

"When the plot changed into as soon as made in Dublin, we knew we were within the toughest crew", O'Neill talked about.

Northern Ireland were, however, left "devastated" at their inability to hang on, with the result leaving them as rank outsiders to qualify, given that the Dutch and Germans both have a game in hand. But he added that although the top-ranked side had achieved their main goal, they would not be taking it easy as their next aim was "to go for 30 (points) from 30 in the group". "Given the nature of how we lost here it would be nice to beat them in Belfast". "We knew the significance of a point here, we knew the significance of three points but to come away with nothing, we have to look to the final two games".

O'Neill spoke before the match of sowing doubt within the minds of a young Dutch crew making an try to steer clear of the ignominy of failing to be triumphant in a 3rd successive major tournament, and for 80 minutes it working.

"It was a combination of fatigue on our part and the quality of the opposition".

Yet then Magennis silenced the home fans before the Dutch picked themselves up for a grand finale.

"We couldn't really fight them", he said.

"It was hard with the time-wasting and the fouls but we must have respect for them".

O'Neill pointed to the lack of depth in his squad, with Koeman able to introduce De Jong, Donyell Malen and Donny Van De Beek late on while he turned to Magennis, Jordan Thompson and Tom Flanagan. It was a fantastic performance but ultimately one that was disappointing in the end. "We want to be a team that's better than that".
