Inter Milan wingback Denzel Dumfries will be in the starting eleven for the Dutch national team for this evening’s EURO 2024 qualifier against Greece.
The 27-year-old Nerazzurri man will start on the right as the Oranje look to get their qualifying campaign back on track.
Over the past few years, Dumfries has become a regular for the Dutch national team.
The wingback broke through at Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven, earning himself call-ups for the Netherlands.
Dumfries made his first appearance for his senior national side in 2018. He made his debut in a 3-0 win over Germany.
The 27-year-old has made 45 appearances for the Netherlands to date. This evening will make his 46th appearance.
The Oranje have some catching up to do in their bid to qualify for the 2024 European championships.
Ronald Koeman’s side have played just two matches so far in their qualifying campaign. They are on three points.
Meanwhile, the Netherlands’ opponent for this evening, Greece, have played three matches and amassed six points.
France lead the way in the qualifying group with twelve points from twelve so far.
Denzel Dumfries Starts For Netherlands Amid Strong Start To The Season With Inter
Dumfries’s form for his club side Inter has been good so far this season.
The Dutchman has started in every one of the Nerazzurri’s three matches so far in Serie A.
Dumfries has scored one goal and assisted another over the period. Inter have won each of their first three matches of the season, scoring eight goals and conceding none.
Dumfries and Inter have beaten the likes of Monza, Cagliari, and Fiorentina so far.
Juan Cuadrado arrived at Inter this summer on a free transfer.
The veteran former Juventus, Chelsea, and Fiorentina wingback will undoubtedly provide some competition for Dumfries.
But so far, the Dutchman has held onto his starting spot. He has impressed in his three outings so far, whilst Cuadrado has appeared from the bench.
Dumfries had been in Inter’s starting eleven for last season’s Champions League final against Manchester City.
