After an excellent qualification campaign under Ronald Koeman, the Dutch will be keen to put on a show under current boss Frank de Boer

Netherlands are set to kick off their Euro 2020 with a clash against Ukraine at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Sunday.

Ronald Koeman’s departure as manager and the season-ending injury suffered by captain Virgil van Dijk has weakened them severely, with new coach Frank de Boer having guided his side to just five wins in 11 games in charge.

If they resemble the version which topped a Euro qualifying group containing Portugal, beat Spain in the Nations League and drew with France in World Cup qualifying in March, Ukraine could go deep in the tournament.

Here’s how to watch Netherlands vs Ukraine in India.

Netherlands vs Ukraine: Team news

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek had to withdraw through injury. Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, tested positive for COVID-19, has been replaced by PSV’s Marco Bizot but with Ajax veteran Maarten Stekelenburg as the touted option. Matthijs De Ligt is an injury doubt for the Ukraine game. 

 

Ukraine boss Andriy Shevchenko is sweating on the fitness of Dynamo Kyiv winger Viktor Tsygankov. A calf injury kept him out of June’s friendlies, but there is some optimism that he could be back in time for this one.
