Match ends, Gibraltar 0, Netherlands 7.
A dominant second-half display saw Netherlands brush Gibraltar aside and boost their World Cup qualifying hopes.
They were frustrated by a disciplined home side before Steven Berghuis curled home three minutes before half-time.
Memphis Depay scored twice, alongside goals from Luuk de Jong, Georginio Wijnaldum and substitutes Donyell Malen and Donny van de Beek in a complete second-half display.
Frank de Boer's side are second in Group G, a point behind Turkey.
Before the game head coach De Boer had spoken about a desire to win by at least five goals.
But, despite a first-half dominance that saw them have 82% possession and 19 shots, a lack of precision and quality in the final third made that seem unlikely.
Gibraltar keeper Dayle Coleing, who plays for Irish Premiership side Glentoran, made great saves to deny Depay and former Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen before Berghuis capitalised on a loose ball to sweep home this second international goal in as many games.
Former Manchester United defender Daley Blind was taken off on a stretcher with a serious-looking knee injury minutes into the second-half, before the floodgates opened.
De Jong flicked a Berguis cross home at the near post, before a Depay free-kick from the left-hand side of the area took a wicked deflection and wrong-footed Coleing.
Wijnaldum volleyed home a fourth, after his initial header was saved, before Malen tapped home a selfless cut-back from Klaassen to round off four goals in nine minutes.
Van de Beek swept home the sixth with his left-foot, minutes after coming off the bench, before Depay slotted home for his second.
Before the game the Netherlands team wore t-shirts saying "football supports change" in protest at human-rights issues in Qatar, where the 2022 Fifa World Cup is due to be held.
