Maatsen named in Netherlands Euro squad after all

After initially being left out of the Netherlands squad for Euro 2024, Ian Maatsen has been called up following injuries to Frenkie de Jong and Teun Koopmeiners.

Ian Maatsen, who spent the 2023/24 season on loan at Borussia Dortmund from Chelsea, will join the Netherlands training camp in Wolfsburg on Tuesday.

The left-back was initially omitted from the Netherlands roster, but has now been included in the final squad after injuries to Frenkie de Jong and Teun Koopmeiners, the Dutch Football Association announced on Tuesday.

Maatsen is yet to make his senior debut for the Netherlands, but has made 17 appearances for the U-21 side.

After joining Dortmund on loan from Chelsea in January, he has become a regular starter for the club, making 23 appearances, scoring three goals and providing two assists.

The Netherlands have had a promising build-up to Euro 2024, beating both Canada and Iceland 4-0.
