The Netherlands now also takes out against England killer Iceland, Poland sees Lewandowski drop out

After a 4-0 win against Canada, the Dutch team has now also put 4 in Iceland’s basket. A dampener on the joy: Frenkie De Jong cannot officially go to Germany. The other Barcelona star, Robert Lewandowski, also injured himself tonight in Poland, which won against Turkey.

If there were any questions about the form of the Netherlands for the European Championship, they were all swept away in the past week.

Four days after the impressive 4-0 win against Canada, another resounding victory followed in De Kuip. Iceland was defeated tonight with the same score.

Xavi Simons was the first to score the net. He opened the scoring halfway through the first half. Shortly after halftime, Virgil van Dijk made it 2-0 with his second in as many games.

Substitutes Donyell Malen and Wout Weghorst caused a small celebration at the end of the match with a third and a fourth goal. The Dutch team waved goodbye to their fans in an ideal way.

Although the euphoria was short-lived: shortly after the match, the KNVB announced that Frenkie de Jong will definitely miss the European Championship due to an ankle injury.

Polish headaches

Things were also bad for a Barcelona player in Warsaw. After half an hour, Robert Lewandowski went to the changing rooms with an injury.

Earlier in that practice match, Swiderski had also clumsily injured himself during a goal celebration. Swiderski, in turn, was already a replacement in the Polish selection for… the injured Milik.

Despite all those setbacks, Poland did pull the plug against Turkey. Swiderski pushed the 1-0 through the goalkeeper’s legs just before his poor celebration.

Baris Yilmaz tied the score again in minute 77, but in minute 90 Zalewski still provided the Polish boost.

It is not yet known how bad the situation is for the players who have dropped out. In Poland they will hope that Lewandowski can be deployed against the in-form Netherlands team for the first match at the European Championship.
