They may have won two of them, but it’s hard not to be worried after the Netherlands’ first matches of the year.
Frank de Boer’s side followed up a 4-2 defeat to Turkey with a 2-0 win against Latvia and a 7-0 win over Gibraltar, and we start the latest episode of the Clockwork Oranje podcast off by analysing what went wrong and what right in the three games.
After that, we then take an in-depth look at the Dutch side, from the defence through to the attack, discussing which players impressed, which didn’t, and how the starting is XI is shaping up ahead of the Euros.
De Boer has stated that he has settled on 90% of his squad for the tournament, which leaves some hope for players not in the current selection, such as Wout Weghorst and Cody Gakpo. Of them, who are most likely to be called up? We give our thoughts…
Finally, we wrap things up with a look ahead to the Euros, pondering if there are some reasons to be cheerful, or if we should all be a bit afraid of how things will go.
