Who is their key player?
The Dutch national team will be looking to climb to the top of Euro 88, their only triumph in an international tournament. It won’t be easy without Van Dijk and failing to qualify for the last two majors.
De Jong will be one of the key men if the Dutch have any hope of recreating the glory days of Marco van Basten and company.
De Jong was part of the Ajax squad that reached the Champions League semi-finals in 2019 and secured a dream transfer to Barcelona that summer. While it wasn’t always easy at Camp Nou, the midfielder will be integral to his country’s chances of success in Euros.
