Only Toni Varela appeared in their goalles opening match draw versus South Africa.
Anyone following the Africa Cup?
Here an overview of all participating players from Dutch competitions.
#10. Thulani Serero (Ajax)
#4. Guy Ramos (RKC Waalwijk)
#8. Toni Varela (Sparta Rotterdam)
#13. Josimar Lima (Dordrecht)
#7. Jacob Mulenga (FC Utrecht)
#22. Kenneth Omeruo (ADO Den Haag)
#12. Wilfried Bony (Vitesse)
These are the ones currently playing in the Netherlands. Beside them there's a few former Eredivisie players in, like El Ahmadi, El Hamdaoui, Assaidi and Amrabat for Morocco, Ahmed Musa for Nigeria and Salomon Kalou and Arouna Koné for Ivory Coast.
I might forget one or two...
So far I only saw Mulenga, Bony and Omeruo entering in the second half as a sub. Neither one of them could really impress in the few minutes they played. Mulenga and Omeruo drew their matches, Bony won in the dying seconds.
Tonight it's South Africa v Angola, followed by the Dutch Moroccans versus the Dutch Cape Verdians
