Justin Kluivert believes Netherlands have a great chance of winning the U21 European Championships.

Jong Oranje kick off the Euro group stages on Wednesday with a clash against Romania before games against Germany and Hungary.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Kluivert said, “I think I have been here the longest from this selection. I’m happy to be there. A European Championship is something very nice to experience.”

Kluivert has high hopes for Erwin van de Looi’s side, “Good countries are participating: England, France, Spain, Portugal and we are also among the teams that can achieve something beautiful.

“I think we can certainly compete in the top, I have a lot of confidence in that. I know we belong there too. That’s why it’s important to win these three games and to keep going. Who knows, we can then lift the cup at the end. When I look at this team, I think that is certainly possible. It must be our goal and it is.”
