Marc Felix again in the selection of the Dutch national team | 1 Limburg

Mark Flex of Bocholtz will also be included in the Dutch national team selection for upcoming international matches. This is the fourth consecutive international period in which a goalkeeper has been selected for the Orange squad.

National coach Louis van Gaal has selected 26 players for the four matches that Orange will play in the Nations League in the coming weeks.

Cup final
Van Gaal chose three goalkeepers in his selection. In addition to Flick, Jasper Cillessen and Tim Kroll have been called up by the national coach. The selection is the culmination of a good season for the Fleks. Limburger has been under the bar in nearly every game this season at his club, SC Freiburg. With this club, he finished sixth in the German Bundesliga and reached the cup final for the first time in the club’s history. In it, Freiburg lost on penalties to Leipzig.

The rhythm of the match
In addition to Flick, Cillessen and Kroll were chosen by Van Gaal. Kroll was also the first goalkeeper for his club, Norwich City, with whom he was relegated from the Premier League. Cillessen has the lowest match cadence of the three goalkeepers. He suffered a calf injury and is no longer the first choice in his club, Valencia.

Van Gaal also has a debut space in his pick. Midfielder Jerdi Schotten of Bologna is the first-choice. In addition, two players returned to the selection who had not been part of the Dutch national team for a long time: Bruno Martins Indy and Vincent Janssen.

for the first time
Felix made his Dutch national team debut last March. The Limburg goalkeeper made his debut in Denmark’s 4-2 win. Van Gaal was satisfied with the goalkeeper’s debut and also allowed Felix to play against Germany (1-1) three days later.

The League of Nations
In the coming weeks, the Dutch national team will play four international matches in the Nations League, a tournament that could be a safety net in case they fail to qualify for the European Championship and the chance to win an award. The Orange team will play Belgium on June 3 in Brussels, on June 8 in Cardiff against Wales, then two matches in De Koep in Rotterdam against Poland and Wales (June 11 and 14).

System
Van Gaal will also use international matches to develop gameplay in the lead-up to the World Cup in Qatar later this year. In March, Orange trained on a system with three center backs. According to Van Gaal, Flick would be the best fit for this system. It also looks like the coming period is the last chance to fiddle with the game system. There is still one World Cup international match period in September, but it is much shorter than in the coming weeks. In that period, the Orange team will play the other two matches in the Nations League against Poland and Belgium.
