  width =

The Dutch national team will play a match in the Kuip on Friday evening at 8:45 pm after more than a year and a half against world champion France. For the French a special reunion with the Rotterdam turf on which they crowned themselves European champion eighteen years ago. A month after the 3-0 victory over Germany, the Dutch team wants to prove that it can also control the world champion.

Two months ago

Both countries also played each other in September. In the Stade de France, a good competition took place in which the host took the lead. With twelve French shots on the goal versus five of the Orange, the home team was the parent, but the Dutch national team resisted well. In the first half, the players of Ronald Koeman had a lot of trouble with the French attack waves, but in the second half the team grew in the game and made it pretty difficult for the world champion. The Dutch were even close to victory, but in the end Olivier Giroud won the game with a nice volley (2-1).

Convincing soccer player

On Friday, the Netherlands must show that the good game of recent months has not been a resurgence. The matches against Germany and Belgium were good and gave confidence and Frenkie de Jong had a large share in that. In Paris, De Jong made his debut for the Orange squad, while he can no longer be ignored in the basic line-up. The player of Ajax makes an adult impression. He sets the lines, sends measured passes and has strong defensive actions. In the Eredivisie, De Jong has a pass accuracy of 89% on half of the opponent, by far the highest percentage of all Eredivisie players. If the midfielder manages to continue this line at the Orange squad, the world champion will have a difficult evening.

French injuries

The double European and world champion has to do without the star players Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial on Friday. For national coach Didier Deschamps a loss, however, he has worthy substitutes with players like Steven Nzonzi, Nabil Fekir and Ousmane Dembélé. Antoine Griezmann is the man to keep an eye on. He has already scored twice in three games in the Nations League and is also in the Champions League for his club Atlético Madrid with three goals in four games. The striker has a nose for the goal and stands up in big matches. Matthijs de Ligt and Virgil van Dijk have the task of stopping Griezmann and at least keeping a point in Rotterdam.
