Van Aanholt's Netherlands win again as Palace's Euro 2020 internationals advance

18 June 2021

Patrick van Aanholt started in another Netherlands victory as Palace's summer internationals began to book their places in the last 16 of Euro 2020 - you can keep up to date with how they get on below!

The Netherlands beat Austria 2-0 in a convincing performance, after their thrilling 3-2 victory over Ukraine, which booked their place in the last 16 with one group match to spare. Van Aanholt started at wing-back in a five-man defence in both matches.

The defender is one of four Palace players at this summer's delayed European Championships. Michy Batshuayi and Christian Benteke were unused substitutes in Belgium's comeback win over Denmark, but will be available as the Red Devils enter the last 16. 

Meanwhile, Wayne Hennessey's Wales look set to qualify for the knockout rounds, after their two goal victory over Turkey.

Away from the Euros, Jordan Ayew captained Ghana to a draw against the Ivory Coast, while Cheikhou Kouyate also enjoyed a successful post-season outing, appearing twice for Senegal in two convincing victories.

It's also a busy period for Palace's Academy prospects, with Scott Banks and Sion Spence recieving international recognition. Banks played twice for Scotland Under-21s while Spence started for Wales Under-21s.

Tayo Adaramola and Fionn Mooney have also been called up to the Republic of Ireland Under-19s training camp.
