The Dutch team plays in the ArenA in a friendly against England. It is the first match under new coach Ronald Koeman. While the British, in Orange an ideal sparring partner to see in the run-up to the world cup, used Koeman the game especially to build in the direction of the Nations League which starts in september. Daley Blind, Ibrahim Afellay, Georginio Wijnaldum, Davy Klaassen and Virgil van Dijk, coincidentally, are all active in the English league, probably back under Koeman. For them, Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling well-known opponents. The teams are matched: the twenty times that the Netherlands and England playing against each other, won the Netherlands six duels. Nine times ended the confrontation in a tie.

We will only things need to change,” he said last month at his presentation in Zeist. As missing, according to Koeman, topsportmentaliteit. “I’ve worked a lot with guys who are also in Orange played and when I talked with them, I had the feeling that the Dutch team for them to have a snack.
