Fosu-Mensah Added To Holland Squad

7 November 2017

Eagles defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has been moved into the full Holland squad for their upcoming friendly games against Scotland and Romania.

The on-loan Manchester United defender has moved into Dick Advocaat’s squad from the under-21s due to an injury to Lyon defender Kenny Tete, and could add to his cap collection having made his Oranje debut in September against France.

After the Dutch failed to qualify for a second successive major tournament by finishing third in their 2018 World Cup qualification group, Advocaat’s rebuilding job has already begun, with his squad taking on Scotland in Aberdeen on Thursday night, before travelling to Bucharest for a game against Romania five days later.

Fosu-Mensah is the fifth Palace player to be called up for international action during this current international break.
