Dynamic Dutch Can Record Entertaining Success

Ronald Koeman’s side have been dealt a few blows in the build-up to the tournament, with midfielders Frenkie de Jong and Teun Koopmeiners ruled out through injury, but they do have the benefit of facing a Lewandowski-less Poland.

Poland’s 35-year-old superstar sustained the injury in a 2-1 win against Turkey on Monday and is sidelined, which ought to motivate the Dutch camp.

Oranje have won eight of their last 10 internationals and they warmed up with emphatic 4-0 wins over Canada and Iceland last week, sharing the goals around a number of their household names.

The Dutch have a lot of exciting forwards, including Liverpool’s Cody Gakpo, Atletico Madrid ace Memphis Depay, Donyell Malen of Borussia Dortmund and lively RB Leipzig winger Xavi Simons, and characteristically like to play on the front foot.

Fourteen of the Netherlands’ last 16 internationals have gone over 2.5 goals and they can record a high-scoring victory over Poland, who are missing their main man but who are on a five-match winning streak.

Slisz Likely to Be Under Plenty of Pressure

Bartosz Slisz has been handed the responsibility of adding an extra layer of protection to Poland’s defense and, as a result, the holding midfielder may struggle to escape the referee’s attention.

Slisz has been capped only nine times, but the energetic 25-year-old played a key role in their qualification and has been booked twice, which includes their latest friendly win over Turkey.

He plies his trade with Atlanta United in the MLS, so this represents a huge hike in class for him and he was cautioned in three of his final six league starts.
