FIFA ranking: 16

Coach: Frank de Boer

De Boer replaced Barcelona-bound Ronald Koeman in September 2020, having previously coached Ajax Amsterdam, Inter Milan, Crystal Palace and Atlanta United. The Oranje have secured four wins in his opening nine games so far (D2 L3).

Captain: Georginio Wijnaldum

The team’s top scorer in the Euro 2020 qualifiers with eight goals, Wijnaldum brings steel, elegance and craft to midfield.

He took over as captain after Liverpool team mate Virgil van Dijk’s cruciate ligament injury last year ruled him out of the finals.

Top player: Memphis Depay

Depay reinvented himself under Ronald Koeman to devastating effect, scoring six goals and creating five in the qualifiers.

The Olympique Lyonnais forward will look to continue his prolific club form with the national side, leading the attack with his decisiveness, trickery and powerful left foot.

Tournament history

The Netherlands have participated in nine European Championships and won the title in 1988. They have reached the semi-finals on three further occasions in 1992, 2000 and 2004.

The Oranje lost all three of their group games in 2012 and failed to qualify for the 2016 edition.

Having also missed the 2018 World Cup in Russia, it marks their longest absence from major tournaments since their Euro triumph in 1988.
