Netherlands

In the first round of the European Championship, the Oranje faced Poland. The Poles quickly took the lead in the 16th minute, but the Dutch managed to turn the game around. Koeman's team dominated the pitch throughout the first half and scored in the 29th minute, with Cody Gakpo finding the net. After the break, the Netherlands continued to hold possession, but the Poles were more dangerous, launching five shots on target. In the second half, the Dutch had only one shot on goal, which proved decisive as Weghorst secured the victory for the Oranje in the 83rd minute.


The Netherlands gained three crucial points in the battle for the playoffs. They have a challenging group ahead, with matches against France and Austria still to come. Therefore, the hard-fought victory over Poland is significant. Overall, Koeman's team approaches the match against France with an optimal lineup, free of losses and unexpected news.

France

Les Bleus also began their current European Championship campaign with a victory. In their opening game, the French faced Austria. The Austrians put up a fight and limited France's attacking opportunities. However, towards the end of the half, France capitalized on a chance, scoring in the 38th minute with an own goal by an Austrian defender, making it 1-0. After the break, France ceded possession to Austria and awaited counterattack opportunities. They couldn't score again but maintained a narrow 1-0 win.


Les Bleus secured a minimal victory over Austria, earning three points. It's a good start for the World Cup runners-up and one of the main contenders for the European title. However, a troubling incident occurred as France's star player, Kylian Mbappé, sustained a nasal fracture. It's still uncertain whether Mbappé will play against the Netherlands, though he did participate in pre-match training. Despite reports suggesting Mbappé might miss the remainder of the group stage, he could still feature in this game. Additionally, Olivier Giroud's participation is doubtful due to a groin injury. If both players miss the game, it could give the Netherlands a significant advantage.
