The Dutch national team started training with a complete selection on Friday morning in the run-up to the start of the season World Cup in Qatar. That reports NU.nl. All 26 selected players were on the field on Friday at the training complex in Doha, the news medium said.
Where the Orange trained twice on Thursday, the selection of national coach Louis van Gaal will only train once on Friday. There is also only one training per day during the weekend. The first World Cup match is scheduled for Monday. Senegal will be the opponent at 5 p.m.
Memphis Depay, who did not play for his club FC Barcelona in the past two months due to an upper leg injury, will ‘just’ train along on Friday. For the time being, it seems that Depay will make minutes against Senegal as a substitute. Dumfries, who was injured at Internazionale on Sunday, is also training and seems ready for a basic place.
