Included in the 18-man squad are Ajax striker Richairo Zivkovic, FC Twente’s wonder-kid Bilal Ould-Chikh, and star of the U17 European Championships last summer Jari Schuurman, who plays for Feyenoord.

Full squad is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Jeroen Houwen (Vitesse), Yanick van Osch (PSV),

Defenders: Jairo Riedewald (Ajax), Leeroy Owusu (Ajax), Calvin Verdonk (Feyenoord), Damien van Bruggen (Ajax), Kevin Diks (Vitesse), Damon Mirani (Ajax)

Midfielders: Jari Schuurman (Feyenoord), Abdelhak Nouri (Ajax), Donny van de Beek (Ajax), Stijn Spierings (AZ), Bart Nieuwkoop (Feyenooord)

Attackers: Steven Bergwijn (PSV Eindhoven), Richairo Zivkovic (Ajax), Pelle van Amersfoort (Heerenveen), Bilal Ould-Chikh (Twente), Issa Kallon (Utrecht)

Last year Netherlands U19’s finished third in their qualifying group and missed out on the tournament, and the chance to qualify for the U20 World Cup. Riedewald and Zivkovic were part of that group and they will be hoping to make amends in Poland.
