Hoedt and the Netherlands rebounded from their thrashing against France to claim a 3-1 win over Bulgaria in Amsterdam. The crucial Group A result saw the Oranje climb within two three points of France, which has a game in hand.
The Saints defender continued to impress, narrowly missing out on scoring his second-ever International goal when he fired wide from outside the box in a then goalless game.
Andre Silva’s goal, however, would be enough to push the European champions over the line in Budapest whilst Switzerland also secured victory.
World Cup qualifying continues on Monday with a trio of Saints in contention for places in their respective starting line-ups.
All games are set to kick-off at 7:45pm (BST).
