Podcast: Predicting the Netherlands’ Euro 2020 squad

The first Netherlands squad to play at a major tournament since 2014 is set to be announced, and we’ve predicted who will be in it.

We – Finley Crebolder and Peter McVitie – kick things off by looking at the side’s goalkeeping options, and are in agreement about who the three to be included will be.

In the defence meanwhile, a huge amount depends on injury recoveries. Will Virgil van Dijk and Daley Blind make the squad, and if not, who will take their spots instead?

There are fewer question marks over the midfield positions, with six players all but guaranteed to make the cut. However, with the squad size being increased from 23 to 26, De Boer is likely to include a seventh, and Kevin Strootman and Teun Koopmeiners seem the most likely candidates.

Further forward, once again there are a number of players who will definitely be going to the Euros. With Wout Weghorst in excellent form, Cody Gakpo looking exciting and Arjen Robben fit and healthy again though, the bondscoach has some big decisions to make.
