From the Dutch point of view, it is ‘making matters worse’.
On the morning of tomorrow (Saturday the 25th), you can meet Mbappe, who became the new captain of the French national soccer team. ‘Captain’ Mbappe’s first opponent preparing for Euro 2024 qualifiers is the ‘Orange Legion’ Netherlands. Unfortunately온라인바카라, Cody Gakpo, who scored in the entire group stage of the World Cup, cannot participate. However, can Mbappe break through the Netherlands, which is captained by the world’s best defender, Fairgil van Dijk?
France, third in the FIFA rankings and the strongest country in European football, made an unconventional choice ahead of the Euro 2024 qualifiers. Born in 1998, 26-year-old Korean Mbafe was appointed as the youngest captain. There were even reports that Griezmann, who was born in 1991, was angry with this and was considering retiring from his national team, but coach Deschamps immediately refuted this and stated that there was no problem.
Deschamps dismissed rumors of his retirement, saying “Grizmann is a key player in terms of being the engine of the team. He has been and will be.” Expectations are high on how Mbappe, who has earned the nickname of a bad boy because of his outstanding skills but is often caught up in controversies over ‘misbehavior’, will change as he endures the weight of the captain’s armband.
The Netherlands are captained by Fairgil van Dijk, one of the best defenders in the world. Although he is showing a bit of a sluggish look at his team Liverpool this season, the presence that van Dijk has can’t be ignored. Can Van Dijk, who was called the ‘wailing wall’, stop the French national team of ‘sharp spear’ Mbappe?
However, the blade to finish the attack and the coordinating gakpo are not available. Gakpo’s team, Liverpool FC, announced on their official website that ‘Cody Gakpo is out of the Dutch squad’. His reason is injury (illness). In response, five players, including Matteis de Ligt, Sven Botman, Joey Peirman, and Bart Veribrugen, temporarily got off the game for the same reason. That’s a big bad news for the Netherlands.
The last match between France and the Netherlands was in the 2018 Nations League. In the two matches at the time, the Netherlands defeated France 2-0, and France won 2-1, showing a close match.
Who will be the national team that will show a better performance in their first head-to-head match in about 5 years? The match, which will be held at the Stade de France in Paris, France, will be broadcast live exclusively on SPOTV ON and SPOTV NOW at 4:45 am on the 25th.
