The 18-year-old has been in fine form for Ajax recently and was awarded with a call-up to the Oranje squad by Ronald Koeman for the upcoming friendlies with England and Portugal.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Kluivert said, “I was extra tense during training, I knew it would become known today.

“This is something I am very proud of. At my age already at Oranje is special. The next step is to hope for minutes and make my debut.”

Justin is in line to emulate his father Patrick who also made his Oranje debut at the age of 18.
