The Dutch nation were stopped in the Round of 16 in the Euro 2020.

Four players were cut off from the preliminary squad as the Netherlands moved quickly to formally declare their team for the Euro 2024 to be held in Germany.

The Netherlands national football team are in Group D of the competition. It includes Poland, Austria and France. It is clearly a difficult group.

On June 16, Ronald Koeman’s team will play their first game against Poland at Hamburg’s Volksparkstadion. Though ‘Oranje’ went on to advance to the Round of 16, they were shocked 2-0 by the Czech Republic in the Euro 2020

Koeman was quick regarding his decision-making as in only a few days of practice four players from the team had been left behind. But untimely injuries to both Frenkie de Jong and Teun Koopmeiners have reintroduced previously left-out Ian Maatsen. Maatsen is on loan at Borussia Dortmund from the Premier League side Chelsea.

The chosen team seems like a combination of young age and expertise. Koeman will be optimistic about his team’s ability to make some noise even though de Jong won’t be playing a part this summer.

Goalkeepers: Justin Bijlow (Feyenoord), Mark Flekken (Brentford), Bart Verbruggen (Brighton)
