Van Aanholt Wins Seventh Netherlands Cap

23 March 2018

Ronald Koeman named Patrick van Aanholt in his starting eleven and Timothy Fosu-Mensah on the bench as he named his first side as national boss but it ended in a 1-0 defeat against England on Friday.

Van Aanholt made his first international appearance since joining Palace and now has seven caps, while Fosu-Mensah was not called upon from the bench in the Amsterdam Arena.

Gareth Southgate’s side achieved England’s first victory over the Netherlands since Euro 1996 with the game decided by Jesse Lingard's first international goal just before the hour mark.

Next up for Koeman’s squad day is a match on Monday in Geneva as they take on European champions Portugal.
