Euro 2024: Netherlands confirm final squad for summer tournament

The Netherlands have confirmed their final squad for Euro 2024.

Netherlands

The Netherlands have pulled the trigger early and announced their final squad for Euro 2024.

Ronald Koeman’s side kick-off their campaign on 16 June against Poland and are joined by Austria and France in Group D.

Four players have been cut from the preliminary squad named last week, with one big omission in defence.

Chelsea’s Ian Maatsen, on loan at Borussia Dortmund, has been cruelly left out.

He will likely line up for the Champions League final against Real Madrid on Saturday but his season will end there.

Nick Olij, Quinten Timber and Marten de Roon are the other three to miss out.

The decision comes after just a week of training ahead of next month’s tournament and Koeman has left a balance of both youth and experience.

The Dutch will be underdogs to win in Germany but they have some world-class talent, including Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong.

Final Netherlands squad

Goalkeepers: Justin Bijlow (Feyenoord), Mark Flekken (Brentford), Bart Verbruggen (Brighton).

Defenders: Nathan Ake (Manchester City), Daley Blind (Girona), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Denzel Dumfries (Inter Milan), Jeremie Frimpong (Bayer Leverkusen), Lutsharel Geertruida (Feyenoord), Matthijs de Ligt (Bayern Munich), Micky van de Ven (Tottenham), Stefan de Vrij (Inter Milan).

Midfielders: Ryan Gravenberch (Liverpool), Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona), Teun Koopmeiners (Atalanta), Tijjani Reijnders (AC Milan), Jerdy Schouten (PSV), Xavi Simons (RB Leipzig), Joey Veerman (PSV), Georginio Wijnaldum (Al Ettifaq).

Forwards: Steven Bergwijn (Ajax), Brian Brobbey (Ajax), Memphis Depay (Atletico Madrid), Cody Gakpo (Liverpool), Donyell Malen (Borussia Dortmund), Wout Weghorst (Hoffenheim).
