Manchester United attacking midfielder, Donny van de Beek has been ruled out of the European Championship due to injury.
The Player who had a bright start to life at Manchester United soon became a regular on the bench as Ole Gunnar could not find a system to accommodate him.
He’s has looked a bright spark whenever he was called upon but having to compete with Bruno Fernandes for a place in the starting xi didn’t do him much service.
His misery now compiles as he will not be at the Euros as a result of an injury he picked up in training.
This comes as a major setback for the player who was looking to prove his worth at the European Championship as doing that with United will be very difficult.
Van de Beek (24) played nineteen international matches for the Orange squad. His last appearance was in March in a 7-0 World Cup qualifier against Gibraltar. The Orange squad opens the European Championship on Sunday in Amsterdam against Ukraine.
Goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen previously dropped out as a result of a positive corona test. De Boer brought in AZ keeper Marco Bizot as a replacement from the group.
Due to the retirement of Van de Beek, the European Championship selection of the Dutch national team now consists of 25 players.
The Netherlands will play their first group match against Ukraine on Sunday, June 13.
On Thursday, June 17, Austria will be the opponent, while the group stage will conclude with a meeting with North Macedonia on Monday, June 21.
All duels take place in the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam.
