Last night saw Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum condemn racism, as he posed alongside fellow midfielder Frenkie de Jong to show their skin tones united.

The pair both held their arms together after Wijnaldum’s opening goal of the game in the sixth minute.

The Dutchman would go on to complete his hat-trick in the 78th minute in Netherlands’ 5-0 win over Estonia in Group C.

The incident came after Ahmad Mendes Moreira was racially abused in the Dutch second tier on the weekend.

The Excelsior striker told the referee of the abuse early into the game and he eventually halted the game, with Moreira initially walking off the pitch before coming back on to score in front of the opposing fans.

Dutch manager Ronald Koeman and Wijnaldum hit out at the incident in the pre-match press conference, saying they were shocked that it happened in their home country.

Wijnaldum noted he would have walked off the pitch if the incident happened to him and called on politicians to tackle the social problem.

The 5-0 win ensured Oranje claimed second in the group on 19 points, with Germany topping it with 21.

The Liverpool midfielder captained Netherlands after Virgil van Dijk left the national team over the weekend due to personal reasons.

The pair are both set to feature against Crystal Palace at 3pm on Saturday, however.
