How Netherlands could line up against Georgia

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how the Netherlands could line up against Georgia on Sunday evening.

The Netherlands will complete their preparations for this summer's European Championships with a friendly against Georgia on Sunday evening.

Holland played out a 2-2 draw with Scotland in their last match on Wednesday, and head coach Frank de Boer is likely to make a number of changes for this weekend's encounter.

It is a fine balance between resting players and keeping them match fit for their Euro 2020 opener against Ukraine on June 13, but it seems likely that Memphis Depay, who scored both goals against Scotland, will drop down to the bench, while the same could also be said for Georginio Wijnaldum.

Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong should both be involved for the home side, though, while Manchester United's Donny van de Beek could feature in the middle of the park.

Steven Berghuis, Quincy Promes, Ryan Gravenberch and Patrick van Aanholt are also among those who could come into contention for starting roles, while the experienced Maarten Stekelenburg may feature between the sticks.

Donyell Malen is one of a number of talented attackers in the squad, and the 22-year-old should be involved in some capacity, while PSV Eindhoven's Cody Gakpo is pushing to win his first cap.

Wout Weghorst might keep his spot in the final third of the field, though, with Luuk de Jong potentially coming off the bench in the second period for the Euro 1988 winners.

Netherlands possible starting lineup: Stekelenburg; Veltman, De Ligt, De Vrij, Van Aanholt; Van de Beek, Gravenberch, F de Jong; Berghuis, Weghorst, Promes
