Newcastle United's goalkeeper Tim Krul has described his international debut against Brazil as "a dream come true."
Krul's clean sheet helped the Netherlands to a 0-0 draw in their international friendly in Goiania.
And the 23-year-old - whose appearance came following the absence of Maarten Stekelenburg and Michel Vorm through injury - was delighted to keep a clean sheet against Brazil.
Krul said: "This is like a dream come true for me. Making your debut like this gives a fantastic feeling.
"It was an amazing evening and I am very happy. It went really well, although I admit that I had some luck as well when Erik Pieters cleared a ball off the goal-line.
"Keeping a clean sheet against Brazil is quite something."
