Out-of-favor Manchester United winger Memphis Depay went in to score twice and save the Netherlands' blushes in Luxembourg in World Cup qualifying Sunday. On an evening when Europe's minnows came close – but ultimately fell short – of springing some major upsets, Depay gave United manager Jose Mourinho a reminder of his worth just as the Dutch were sliding to an embarrassing draw.Arjen Robben had a chance after a quarter of an hour for the Dutch, but should have done better than firing at Ralph Schon in the Luxembourg goal, as the Dutch tightened the screw.The home stopper was finally beaten on 36 minutes when Robben moved the ball onto his left foot to slot home for a deserved Dutch lead.
