Bayern Munich forward Arjen is in line to win his first cap for a year, with a succession of injury problems meaning he has not played for his country since scoring twice in a 3-2 win away to Wales last November. Sporting Lisbon’s left-sided player Marvin Zeegelaar has been called up by the Oranje for the first time, while the 25-man group contains eight Premier League players.
Key Manchester United ballers to keep an eye out for include: Daley Blind and Memphis Depay, the Southampton duo Jordy Clasie and Virgil van Dijk, Tottenham’s Vincent Janssen and Michel Vorm, Everton’s Maarten Stekelenburg and Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum. These guys are all difference makers capable of tremendous play.
Belgium have won four out of six last international games and won their last World Cup qualifier against Gibralter by six goals to zero. They will be hoping that Kevin De Bruyne can carry on his good form with Manchester City and that Romelu Lukaku can find the back of the net against the Dutch in this friendly.
The Dutch fans are known to be the most colorful in Europe while the Belgium supporters will do their best to make sure that this game and atmosphere are memorable. The Netherlands start as slight favorites but there is really nothing to choose between these two international teams.
