Team News: Netherlands
The Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman will be thankful to have no fitness worries at all ahead of this match with a completely injury-free group available to choose from.
In our view, Oranje could kick off with a 3-4-3 system for the game featuring Bart Verbruggen, Stefan de Vrij, Virgil van Dijk, Daley Blind, Denzel Dumfries, Jerdy Schouten, Tijani Reijnders, Quilindschy Hartman, Xavi Simons, Wout Weghorst and Cody Gakpo.
Team News: Ireland
Thanks to a completely healthy squad ready to go, the Ireland manager Stephen Kenny has zero fitness worries whatsoever before this match.
We’re of the thinking that The Boys in Green could decide to begin the game with a 3-5-2 formation by sending out Gavin Bazunu, Nathan Collins, Dara O'Shea, Liam Scales, Matt Doherty, Alan Browne, Josh Cullen, Jason Knight, Ryan Manning, Evan Ferguson and Callum Robinson.
It’s pretty clear that Ireland might really struggle to be putting one, if any, goals past a Netherlands outfit who have the quality to dominate this game in defence, midfield and attack.
We reckon that it will be a very comprehensive 4-0 thrashing at least for Netherlands by the time that the full-time whistle blows.
