Frenkie de Jong is not nervous as he arrived to join the Netherlands squad for the first time on Monday.

The 21-year-old was called by national team boss Ronald Koeman for the first time as Netherlands face Peru and France over the next week.

Speaking to Ons Oranje the Ajax midfielder said, “Nervous? it is not too bad, the first time is always exciting. Then, of course, you are curious about what is going to happen, that is it.

“I think that the planning here will not differ much from the youth teams. There will be some more media attention and the level is higher, but for the rest … I want to win two games, and I’m just going to do my best and then I’ll see what comes out.”
