Frank de Boer can not dispose of Sunday evening against Bosnia and Herzegovina Memphis Depay, which has been suspended from the Nations League. It is expected that Luuk de Jong takes over his place in the rush hour, but De Boer does not want to name any names yet.
The national coach expects that the loss of Memphis will be visible, but hopes that another player will take over his role against Bosnia and Herzegovina. “Memphis has proven that he is a very important player for the Dutch national team. We have another player in that position, with different qualities. Then we have to take advantage of that,” he secretly refers to De Jong at the press conference before the game.
“I’m not going to line up yet. But it seems clear to me that he is an important candidate in that position”, De Boer continues. The national coach does not want to say too much about the position below the bar. Tim Krul played against Mexico, but Jasper Cillessen seems to be preferred on Sunday. “Jasper trains very well and has left a good impression in recent days”, said De Boer, who has already made a choice. “I no longer doubt, no, it would be bad if I still have to doubt.”
