Injury time goal gives Dutch 1-0 win

Ruud van Nistelrooy scored in injury time to give the Netherlands a hard-fought 1-0 win over Albania in their European Champions League 2008 qualifying match on Wednesday.

The win means the Dutch football team have 20 points in their group, putting them level with leaders Romania.
Albania made life difficult but it was a deserved win for the Netherlands, Dutch coach Marco Van Basten said on RTL4-television. ‘We remained disciplined and my team deserves a compliment,’ he said.
