Lois Openda scored 21 goals for Lens in Ligue 1 last season, and it will be no surprise to see him up front.

Openda was initially named in the senior side's preparations for the Euro 2024 qualifiers, while the likes of Ameen Al-Dakhil, Aster Vranckx and Olivier Deman will remain with the first team until the latter's game against Estonia on Tuesday.

AC Milan's Charles De Ketelaere should assume the number 10 role, just in front of Rangers' Nicolas Raskin in midfield.

Netherlands U21 team news

Sparta Rotterdam defender Shurandy Sambo will be looking to make his U21 national team debut after being called in to replace the injured Sepp van den Berg of Liverpool in the squad.

Meanwhile, having already made their senior international debuts, Ryan Gravenberch, Devyne Rensch, Kenneth Taylor and Jeremie Frimpong were not called up to Ronald Koeman's side to partake in the Euro 2024 qualifiers. However, the decision reportedly didn't go down well with Frimpong and the Bayer Leverkusen man rejected his role with the U21s.

The forward line will be occupied by Ajax's Brian Brobbey and Bologna's Joshua Zirkzee.
