After qualifying top of Group F without losing a single match, all eyes will once again be turned to Gareth Southgate’s England side as the three lions once again put the final touches to their preparations. on Friday, England will travel to Holland to meet a Dutch side who have now missed out on a major tournament for the second time in a row.
For the Dutch, the former European giants have now turned to former Crystal Palace manager Frank De Bour in a hope their former captain can lead the new generation of Dutch talent. For the 2010 World Cup finalists this is now the second major tournament that the Oranges have missed out on after failing to make it to Euro 2016. Finishing third in Group A behind Sweden and France, while De Bour’s side may have no football to look forward to this summer, they have shown some recent signs of improvement. While they may now be without captain Arjen Robben, Holland have now won their last five matches on the bounce, coming through both Sweden and Scotland without conceding a single goal in return.
As for Gareth Southgate’s England side, the three lions have continued their trend of testing themselves against the international elite. In their last two outings, Southgate has seen his side come away with impressive back to back 0-0 draws with Brazil and reigning World Cup winners Germany. Qualifying top of Group F, not only did England go the whole group stage without losing a single matchup, they also finished with both the best defensive and attacking record in the whole of Group A. Southgate’s biggest question is who will be his number one goalkeeper come the finals, electing to take four goalkeepers for their two matches, Southgate is expected to rotate his squad heavily.
