Podcast: Euro 2020 – The Preview

In the latest podcast episode, we preview the first major tournament in seven years that the Netherlands will be a part of, Euro 2020.

First things first, We pick up from where we left off in the last episode, giving our thoughts on the squad that Frank de Boer ultimately opted to take to the Euros.

We then analyse the warm-up matches that took place against Scotland and Georgia, picking out the good and the bad things to take from the games and the 5-3-2 formation that was used in them.

Marten de Roon and Owen Wijndal fell into the latter category, and we talk through their issues and discuss potential alternatives to them, such as Ryan Gravenberch and Daley Blind.

Central defence and the forward line are both stronger areas for the team, but who will start there isn’t yet clear either. Jurrien Timber or Nathan Ake? Donyell Malen or Wout Weghorst? We take our picks…

After some final thoughts on the system that De Boer seems set on using, we then put our necks on the line and make predictions, both about the first match against Ukraine and the tournament as a whole.
