The draw was made by Ajax midfielder Dani de Wit, who received the 2016/17 Respect Fair Play trophy from UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin on behalf of last year’s Netherlands U19 side.

However, De Wit didn’t do Netherlands any favours by drawing Oranje in a tough looking group one alongside neighbours Germany, Norway and Scotland.

Only the group winners progress to the tournament in Finland. The games will take place between the 19th and 28th of March.
