NL European Friendly Tour

Games will be against Ireland (Dublin) on 27th May, Poland (Gdansk) on 1st June and Austria (Vienna) on 4th June.


Quite a few surprises in there with Ramselaar, Rekik, Vilhena and Tosu-Mensah but it's still an extended squad at this stage

No Janmaat, Klaassen, Sneijder, Robben, Huntelaar or van Persie

Beat England at Wembley, so will we continue with the shocks and be spoilers to these teams in their preparations for Euro 2016?

Fosu-Mensah would be interesting. Was starting to get important for Man U before coming off against Spurs, which then led to them getting beaten. Since recovering from injury, he hasn't always been a starter.

LOL. Berghuis picked as replacement for Ramselaar. He hardly played a minute this season.

How much did his agent pay Blind?

He played the last game of the season after the AD linked him to Feyenoord another game for him to showcase his skills

So since the provisional squad had been named these were the changes:

OUT:
Karsdorp
Fosu-Mensah
Rekik
Pieters
Letschert
Ramselaar
Clasie
Anita
Pröpper
Locadia

IN:
Sneijder
Strootman
Berghuis


Predicted Line-up vs Ireland:

Cillessen

Veltman - Bruma - Blind - Willems

Bazoer - Strootman

Wijnaldum

Promes - Janssen - Memphis


Veltman to be converted into a RB permanently?

He should be CB again next season. Unless Bosz still likes him as RB.

A very poor performance against Ireland.

1-1 with a late equalizer by Luuk de Jong with an assist by Willems.
This is not looking good. Only a miracle can bring us to the next World Cup.

Blind to make sure Ajax can get more than 20m for Milik

The Oranje actually beat a decent team under Blind

Surely there will be a loss against Austria then. This seems too good to be true.

0-2 against Austria. Janssen and Wijnaldum with the goals.

Very decent performance, Holland definitely look more organised since Dickie arrived. Didn't create much, but took their chances well. Having Strootman back will be very important in the next qualifying campaign. For his sake and the sake of the NT he better stay healthy.

Vilhena got his debut, while I think Zoet has surpassed Cillissen quality wise.

At least a little glimmer of hope under Blind after these friendlies

Zoet indeed has been outstanding this season and without a doubt the best Dutch keeper in the past 12 months. Cillessen however is the more experienced/consistent goalkeeper so it will be an interesting battle for the no.1 spot over the coming years. A good problem to have for Blind
