AMSTERDAM – In his determination to make this European Championship something of his disaster season, Donny van de Beek (24) has outrun himself. If national doctor Edwin Goedhart had not stepped on the brakes and sent him home from the training camp, the Orange player would probably still have walked the pollen out of the field as soon as that was possible again. “It is always sad when boys have to drop out injured”, national coach Frank de Boer responds to the too serious groin injury of the 19-time international.
