AZ ALkmaar striker Myron Boadu is delighted to be called-up to the Dutch national team for the first time.

The 18-year-old has been in great form for AZ this season with 14 goals and ten assists. His reward is a call-up to the Netherlands squad for the European Championship qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Estonia, alongside teammate Calvin Stengs.

Speaking to De Telegraaf, Boadu said on his first call-up, “I did not expect things to go so fast.

“I am very proud that Calvin and I are among them. Coming here for Oranje is one of the nicest things there is. It can be a fun week, also because Oranje can qualify for the European Championship.”

Boadu’s aim is clear. He wants to be at Euro 2020, “Then I hope to be selected again in March and, if all goes well, to go to the European Championship. I will do everything to achieve it.”
