Van Dijk warns Dutch teammates: ‘We can forget about the Euros’


Dutch national team captain, Virgil van Dijk, has issued a warning to his fellow teammates, stating that failure to maintain focus in upcoming matches could cost them their shot at competing in the upcoming European Championships.

The Warning

Van Dijk, who recently led his country to a 4-2 victory over Germany, noted that his team needed to continue performing at a high level, particularly now that they had many tough games ahead. In his words, “we now have to make sure we can finish it off. We have to be ready every time, every game. If we lose focus one second, then we can just forget about it.”

The Upcoming Matches

The Dutch national team are set to face Estonia and Northern Ireland in their last two qualifications games. These games will be crucial for the Oranje who are currently sitting in third place, two points behind Germany and Northern Ireland.

The Importance of the European Championships

The European Championships are a major tournament in world football, and Van Dijk recognizes the gravity of the situation. Speaking on the importance of the tournament, the Liverpool defender said, “We all know how big it is to play in a tournament like that, especially since we have been missing it the last two times. We have to make sure we will do everything we can to qualify.”


Van Dijk’s warning is a clear indication that the Oranje are taking the remaining fixtures seriously, and will do their utmost to secure a place in the upcoming European Championships.
