The Dutch national team starts on Friday with Quincy Promes and Ryan Babel in the European Championship qualification match in Hamburg against Germany.
Promes replaces Steven Bergwijn in the front right, who has conquered a base position under national team coach Ronald Koeman but is missing against the Germans due to an injury. Babel starts as left winger and Memphis Depay is the Orange striker as expected.
In the defense and in midfield, Koeman chooses the fixed names. The national coach said Monday that Matthijs de Ligt, despite a lesser start at Juventus, is assured of a base place against Germany.
The twenty-year-old former Ajax player starts in the back with captain Virgil van Dijk and Denzel Dumfries and Daley Blind are the backs of the Dutch team. The midfield is formed by Marten de Roon, Georginio Wijnaldum and Frenkie de Jong.
