Inter wingback Denzel Dumfries is set to keep his place in the Dutch national team’s starting eleven for this evening’s FIFA World Cup group stage match against Qatar.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri wingback is likely to start on the right flank for the Oranje in their third and final group stage match against the World Cup hosts.

The Netherlands need a result against Qatar in order to secure their place in the round of sixteen at the World Cup, having gotten an opening day win against Senegal and then a draw in their second match against Ecuador.

Meanwhile, hosts Qatar are already confirmed to be eliminated from the tournament.

Dumfries had started against both Senegal and Ecuador, and should be set to keep his spot for today’s match against the hosts.

The predicted starting eleven for the match is as follows:

Netherlands (3-4-1-2): Noppert; Timber, Van Dijk, Aké; Dumfries, De Roon, F. De Jong, Blind; Gakpo; Weghorst, Depay.
