Liverpool fans may be interested to watch the Dutch in action against the Three Lions.

Could Liverpool fans be tuning in to see their future centre-half pairing?

Of course, Virgil van Dijk will be expected to start for Ronald Koeman’s men days after he won the Champions League trophy.

Van Dijk is set to be partnered by Ajax’s 19-year-old captain Matthijs de Ligt at the heart of the Dutch defence.

De Ligt is widely expected to leave Ajax this summer, while the teenager has been linked with a possible move to Anfield.

Sticking with Liverpool, Gini Wijnaldum is also expected to be in the Holland XI.

According to the Times, two former Man United players should start for the Dutch tonight.

At the back, Daley Blind is set to begin the match at left-back.

Up-front, Memphis Depay (11 goals in his last 14 internationals) is likely to spearhead Holland’s attack.
