De Boer will want to prove opponents wrong this summer, as many critics have suggested he is the wrong fit for the Netherlands.

The Flying Dutchman has been embarrassed after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, and is hoping he can get back on the path to victory.

With a host of young stars including Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong and Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt, they could be a dark horse in the competition.

The nation hopes to add another Euro medal to its name, having won one in 1988.

Frank de Boer polarizes since his appointment in 2020

Netherlands vs Ukraine: What was said?

Manager Frank De Boer has spoken about his decision not to replace Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek, who was recently sent off due to injury.

He said: “Joining the team at this point in our preparations is not exactly ideal.

“We’ve been on the road for two weeks so I don’t like the idea of ​​a new player coming in.”

The gaffer added: “I also have enough midfielders in my team to absorb the blow. Of course, there can always be a situation where I change my mind, but at the moment I prefer to leave the team as it is.

“It’s always sad when a player has to give up injured.”
