We are getting ready for a big game on Friday because Belgium will host Netherlands in a game from the Nations League. Let’s take a look at it in our football tips today.
Belgium is a team that doesn’t need any introduction. They have a squad full of talented players and world stars which led them to the World Cup 1/2-finals four years ago. In the Nations League they are still aiming to achieve some success.
The head coach Roberto Martinez chose his team for the upcoming Nations League matches. The captain Eden Hazard was called again despite having another poor season in Spain, but obviously he still has Martinez’ trust. Meanwhile Romelu Lukaku also had a disappointing campaign at Chelsea, but he’s a player who has scored 68 goals for the national team – he’s just crucial for the Red Devils.
For the Nations League matches Roberto Martinez called three players who don’t have any appearances with the national shirt just yet. These are Reims’ Wout Faes, Lille’s Amadou Onana and Vitesse’s Lois Openda.
Netherlands’ manager Louis van Gaal chose a more experienced squad for the next games. Some of the exceptions are PSV’s Jordan Teze and Bologna’s Jerdy Schouten who are debutants in the team – they don’t have any games for the Dutch side just yet.
Barcelona’s Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong are among Netherlands’ leaders, but PSV’s Cody Gakpo is one of the players to watch. The striker is one of the rising stars of Dutch football and he’s expected to move to a bigger club soon. This is a chance for Gakpo to prove his quality again. Meanwhile the captain Virgil van Dijk is the centre-back figure who doesn’t need any introduction in the Dutch team.
That’s our football tips today for the Nations League game between Belgium and Netherlands on Friday. We wish you good luck!
