Netherlands' Memphis Depay celebrates scoring their third goal with teammates

Drawn in Group 1 of League A, the Netherlands face a tough assignment in the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League, with Italy and Bosnia-Herzegovina making up a difficult section alongside a dangerous Poland outfit.

Holland actually reached the final of the 2018-19 competition, ultimately losing 1-0 to Portugal in the final, with Goncalo Guedes‘s second-half strike providing the difference between the two sides in Porto.

Oranje were in impressive form during qualification for Euro 2020, winning six of their eight matches and suffering just one defeat to finish second in Group C behind Germany.

Koeman led the Netherlands to five wins from their final six European qualification matches, and they will be present in next summer’s finals, having surprisingly missed out four years ago in France.

The home side have actually only lost three of their previous 15 matches against Poland in all competitions, recording six wins in the process, including victories in their last three encounters.
