Frenkie de Jong will not attend Euro 2024 in Germany. This is what the choice of ‘Orange’ himself informs in a statement issued after the completion of today’s friendly match against Iceland and after conducting the relevant medical examinations. The midfielder did not recover from an ankle injury in time.

De Jong returned to training this week and looked ready for the first match of the European Championship against Poland… But hopes quickly dissipated. Holland coach Ronald Koeman has not called up a replacement. He can do this until the debut at the continental championship.

The loss of de Jong is also a serious blow to Koeman… His extension was in this area. Together with Van Dyk and Memphis, one of the leaders of this selection. It’s no secret that he was indisputable and de Jong was the only player that Koeman could expect. If it had been necessary, as reported by local media, he would have missed the first group matches against Poland and France to enter the tournament later. But the injury was very serious.

Monday, of course, could not be more dramatic for the representatives of Barcelona at the European Championship: minutes ago, Robert Lewandowski was injured for Poland in the friendly match against Turka… Although the severity of the Ram’s discomfort is still unknown.

The drama can be twofold… Because Teun Koopmeiners was injured in the warm-up after experiencing discomfort in the groin. The midfielder of Atalanta, Campine of the Europa League in this cycle, was aiming to be one of the key players in Ronald Koeman’s team.
