Van de Beek starts for Netherlands against Italy in Nations League

Manchester United new boy Donny van de Beek starts for the Netherlands tonight.

The Netherlands take on Italy in the Nations League and there’s plenty of Premier League talent on show in Dutch side.

In defence they’ve got Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk as well as Man City new signing Nathan Ake.

In midfield there’s Van de Beek pulling the strings and trying to unlock the attackers against the Italian defence.

Former United man Memphis Depay leads the attack, with Liverpool’s Gini Wijnaldum appearing to start on the right flank.

The official Netherlands national team Twitter account has shared the line-up with the caption: “Here’s Donny!”

It feels nice being able to watch a game knowing one of our new signings will be playing. Not that we’ll see the whole picture tonight, but I’m sure Van de Beek wants to impress knowing the world will be watching his every move now he plays for United.

In light of the news Mason Greenwood has been sent home early from England duty — for breaking COVID rules along with Man City’s Phil Foden — we could do with something positive like a solid display from Van de Beek.

The match will be shown on Sky Sports Premier League.
