De Ligt departs Dutch camp, Gravenberch nominated as replacement

A wave of illness in the Dutch national team training camp has affected five Oranje internationals. 

FC Bayern München defender Matthijs de Ligt is among the quintet of players headed back to their clubs.

Bayern midfielder Ryan Gravenberch has been called up as one of the replacements. 
A viral illness translates to a ticket home for five Dutch internationals featuring in new national team head-coach Ronald Koeman's camp. Among the quintet headed back to their clubs is Bayern defender Matthijs de Ligt. The 23-year-old has departed the Dutch camp ahead of tomorrow's Euro 2024 qualifier against France. 

It might still be possible for de Ligt and others to rejoin the squad ahead of the next Euro qualifier; a March 27th match against Gibraltar in Rotterdam. For the time being, the Dutch FA has announced that further news will come after tomorrow's match. Bayern midfielder/attacker Ryan Gravenberch - among those part of Koeman's preliminary squad - is now officially part of the roster as one of three elevated replacements.
