An inexperienced Northern Ireland side were outclassed as Holland completed their preparations for Euro 2012 with a six-goal romp at a sold-out Amsterdam Arena.

The visitors were prisoners in their own half from start to finish as a full-strength Oranje raced into a 4-0 half-time lead, with Arsenal's Robin van Persie (two), Wesley Sneijder and Ibrahim Afellay all on target.

Afellay made it five in the 51st minute before defender Ron Vlaar completed the scoring.
