Despite the miss, Depay was determined to get on the scoresheet and a couple minutes later he was as he linked up with Davy Klaassen inside the box to tap the ball into the net to make it 2-0 after 20 minutes.
Encouraged by the home support, the Dutch side were unrelenting in their attacks, however, Gibraltar, full of both experience and youth, were equally as relentless in defence and were thus proving tough to breakdown.
Gibraltar would call upon Banda yet again throughout the half, as he denied both Gini Wijnaldum in a 1-on-1 and Stefan De Vrij from a corner, as well as captain Roy Chipolina who produced a massive block on the aforementioned Wijnaldum from point blank range.
Unfortunately for Gibraltar, Netherlands would go on to score one more goal in the half after yet another penalty was given following a rather harsh VAR handball decision during injury time.
Again, up stepped Depay who this time buried his penalty, opting to change direction as he rocketed his shot into the top right corner of the net to make it 3-0.
