The Netherlands is one of the underdogs entering the FIFA World Cup in 2022. However, the national squad has been amazing under Louis Van Gaal’s leadership, making them one of the favorites to win the World Cup. We examine their potential roster for the world cup since they have a balanced team without clear-cut stars.
The final 26-man roster for the Netherlands will be revealed on November 13, 2022, since FIFA gave all national teams until one week before the world cup to complete their registrations.
Netherlands Squad For World Cup 2022
Van Gaal has strongly argued for only choosing players regularly competing for their teams. One of the reasons he advised Timber against moving to United was because it may limit his playing time.
However, he must judge Wijnaldum’s injury, Depay’s lack of playing time at Barcelona, Frankie De Jong’s uncertain starting position, and the health of other important players.

Netherlands Players to Watch
Cody Gakpo has been active in the Dutch football scene for some time, but since Manchester United expressed interest in him in the summer of 2022, his stock has increased. Add to that his outstanding performances with PSV, where he averages a goal per game, and he is unquestionably the player to watch in the World Cup 2022.
