National team coach Louis van Gaal hinted that goalkeeper Mark Flex of Bucholtz will make his debut for the Dutch national team on Saturday.
At a press conference at noon on Monday, the national team initially did not want to reveal which goalkeeper would play against Denmark, until asked which goalkeeper would ideally fit into their intended system. “Then I will announce the name,” Van Gaal said.
Experiment – Experiment
“Mark Flex is ideally suited to building a three-man defense,” the national coach explained. Van Gaal wants to try a three-defender formation in exhibition matches against Denmark and Germany. Van Gaal looks at the fact that Flick is a strong, two-legged player in football. In addition, Flick often plays with three defenders in front of him in Freiburg.
Flick may also be under embargo against the Germans on Tuesday. “It depends on whether the goalkeeper will do well in the first game.” In addition to the Freiburg goalkeeper, Tim Krul (Norwich City) and Joel Drummel (PSV Eindhoven) were also called up. Injured Justin Bello (Feenoord) and Jasper Cillessen (Valencia) are missing from the group.

Falak is in Orange’s selection for the third consecutive international period, but he was less than a second under the bar. He announced last week that he is now counting on playing time against L1, in the absence of Bijlow and Cillessen. “But I don’t want to go there with high expectations,” said the 28-year-old goalkeeper.
