Nederlands vs England
NED vs ENG MATCH PREVIEW:
Nederlands play host to England in International friendly football match at Johan Cruyff Arena, Amsterdam.
The home team will enter a new era as former Everton and Southampton manager start his managerial reign of his country with a match against Three Lions. It's a big task for Koeman as the Netherlands failed to qualify for the last two International football tournaments. Also the fact that both Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben have retired from International football, the Oranges are lacking in seniority in their national set-up.
England, on the other hand, will be aiming to create some momentum ahead of the world. Th three-Lions won eight and drew just two games during their qualifying campaign. With the only problem lies in finding the back of the net.

Form of the teams-
Nederlands missed out on a trip to Russia after they finished 3rd in group A behind France and Sweden. But that is because they only won two games in their first five games. While in the 2nd half of the campaign, their form improved and the Oranges won four of their last five games.
England finished the campaign as leaders of Group F after winning 8 of their 10 games. But there are still some questions lingering on Gareth Southgate's men. They scored just 18 goals in 10 games. And despite winning the matches against Slovenia, Slovakia, and Lithuania, the lack of creativity left the England manager with a lot to ponder upon.

NED vs ENG TEAM NEWS:
Former Everton manager Ronald Koeman is in charge of Nederlands and will be itching to start his life as his country's manager in a best possible way.
Memphis Depay is a doubt for the game. While Manchester United's defensive midfielder Daley Blind is also missing from the match.
Nathan Ake played most of his games for his country at an unusual left-back position. So it will be interesting to see whether Koeman plays him at his natural position, Centre-back, or persists with the left-back position.
Barcelona legend Patrick Kluivert's son Justin Kluivert could make his debut for his country.
Cillessen (GK), Tete, Vrij, Van Dijk, Ake, Strootman, Roon, Wijnaldum, Berghuis, Dost, Depay

Ryan Bertrand was forced to draw from the England Squad due to injury and returned to St Mary's Stadium for further assessment with Southampton.
Harry Kane is out due to the injury. Jamie Vardy is expected to come into his shoes.
Liverpool midfielders Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson will be working their socks off in the middle of the park. Tottenham Hotspur defensive midfielder Eric Dier is expected to be drafted into the defensive backline by Southgate.
Ashley Young is expected to continue his good form at right-back.
