With less than two weeks until they kick off their Euro 2020 campaign, the Netherlands and Scotland square off in a friendly in Portugal on Wednesday.
Scotland qualified for their first major tournament since 1998 with a victory over Serbia in a penalty shootout last year, and they will aim to build confidence going into the group stage as they take on a strong Netherlands outfit who will also make a return having missed the two previous major competitions before this year’s European Championships.
Oranje bounced back from that loss with two consecutive victories, firstly defeating Latvia 2-0 thanks to goals from Steven Berghuis and de Jong.
Frank de Boer’s side then recorded an eye-catching 7-0 win away against Gibraltar, as Memphis Depay netted a brace alongside goals from Berghuis, de Jong, Georginio Wijnaldum, Donyell Malen and Donny van de Beek.
Having failed to qualify for Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup, Oranje will be hoping to make a strong return to major tournaments, as they head into Euro 2020 with a strong chance of making it out of the group stage.
De Boer’s men will look to add a third straight victory on Wednesday, as they aim to build confidence with their first group game coming in under two weeks.
They take on a Scotland side who will also look to build towards the European Championships, as they head into their first major tournament in over 20 years.
