Virgil van Dijk to miss European Championships
As many of us feared, defense giant and captain of Oranjes, Virgil van Dijk, will not participate in the European Championship due to the injury he suffered in October last year.
Liverpool defender Van Dijk suffered from a serious knee injury and is currently focusing on getting back to the pitch 100%.
“My recovery is going well but I had to make a decision” he said. “ I have to accept the situation and I think this is the right decision, given my busy schedule”
Oranje coach Frank de Boer said already in March he did not count on Virgil Van Dijk to lead the team in the upcoming championship. Oranje kick off their campaign in the European Championship in Amsterdam on the 13th of June against Ukraine.
