Names missing from the Van de Looi jury: Justin Kluivert, Noa Lang and Calvin Stengs. Kluivert and Lang are still playing Dutch Juniors in the last European Championship, as the semi-finals turned into the final stop. “We started with a new group of players who were born after January 1, 2000 and had to say goodbye to a generation of players for this reason,” explains Van de Looi on the KNVB website.
A number of new names were included in the national coach: Sidney van Hooydonk, Fodi Fofana, Milan van Eywick and Micky van de Ven.
The Dutch juniors will begin their European Championship qualifying round on September 7 against their peers from Moldova. Adelaarshorst in Deventer is the battlefield. Furthermore, Van de Loy’s team will compete against Switzerland, Bulgaria, Wales and Gibraltar. At stake is a ticket to enter the European Championships in Georgia and Romania in 2023.
