AZ midfielder Tijjani Reijnders was included in the pre-selection of the Dutch national team for the final round of the Nations League in June on Monday. In total there are 32 players on the list of national coach Ronald Koeman.
It is the first time that 24-year-old Reijnders is on the provisional list for the Orange, which has no major surprises.
Daley Blind, who hardly gets any playing time at Bayern Munich, is also included. Just like Jasper Cillissen, who made several mistakes at NEC in recent weeks. Bart Verbruggen, Justin Bijlow and Mark Flek are the other keepers on the list.
Reijnders has secured a permanent starting place this season and regularly excels at AZ, which has reached the semi-finals of the Conference League. Last Thursday he was accurate in the away game against West Ham United.

If the Orange loses to the Croats, the battle for third place awaits in Enschede on June 18. Koeman’s team will therefore play two games anyway, after which the qualification for the European Championship will continue in September.
