Tim Krul earns call-up to Netherlands UEFA Nations League fixtures

19 August 2020

Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul has been called up to the Netherlands national team for their upcoming UEFA Nations League ties.

The Dutch side will face Poland on Friday, September 4 followed closely by Italy on Monday, September 7, ruling Krul out of City’s first round Carabao Cup fixture against Luton Town on Saturday, September 5. 

The call-up is Krul’s first since 2015, after one earlier in the season was cancelled due to the postponement of international matches amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournament will be the second time the Netherlands participate in the Nations League, Portugal taking the title in its debut season after beating Ronald Koeman’s Dutch side 1-0.  

As Koeman takes up the helm at Barcelona, it’ll be a short turnaround as to who will pick up the mantle in Holland in time for the tournament 

Krul last represented his country in the European qualifiers, picking up a 2-1 win over Kazakhstan in 2015, the ‘keeper playing 81 minutes.
