Coach Ronald Koeman chose for the practice game against Portugal probably for a much-changed Dutch national team.
On the basis of the last session in Geneva appear compared to the duel on Friday, with England six or seven other internationals to kick off. The last training session of the Orange for the second international game under Koeman was for a large part decided.
From an adjacent hotel, however, was to see that the new coach practiced in a system with three central defenders, two emerging backs, three midfielders and two strikers. Jasper Cillessen, Kenny Tete, Nathan Aké and Tonny Vilhena were new in the ministry of defence. The front had Bas Dost to make way for Ryan Babel, who is a aanvalskoppel with Depay formed.
Koeman experimented with his midfield in the final game play for the friendly encounter with Portugal. He started with Davy Pröpper, Donny van de Beek and Georgino Wijnaldum. But during the training I got Kevin Strootman also a jacket. Of the Stream and Pröpper did not rise against England.
