Tottenham Hotspur star Micky van de Ven shares message after making international debut

Tottenham Hotspur star Micky van de Ven said he fulfilled his childhood dream after making his senior debut for the Netherlands during the October international.

It has been a brilliant few months for the left-footed centre-back. Spurs brought him to the Premier League from VfL Wolfsburg this summer.

And since then, he has been the clear-cut partner for Cristian Romero in defence, virtually ending Eric Dier’s reign in the starting XI. His performances have been noticed by Ronald Koeman as well.

Van de Ven was named in the Netherlands’ squad for the UEFA Euros 2024 qualifiers this month. The 22-year-old won his first international cap for Holland in their 2-1 loss against France earlier this week.

Big day for Van de Ven

He came on in the 80th minute in front of the home supporters with the score at 2-0. The Oranje ultimately lost, but it would still be a memorable game for the Dutchman.

After the loss, Van de Ven took to his Instagram account and posted a picture from the game where he is coming on for the Manchester City defender. He captioned it:

“A childhood dream, very happy with my @OnsOranje debut 🦁🙏🏼. #NEDFRA #NothingLikeOranje”

Netherlands trail France by nine points and Greece by three points. Both those teams have played six games — one more than the 1988 UEFA Euros champions.

Holland will play Greece on Monday and everybody knows how important that game will be for the Netherlands. It remains to be seen if the Tottenham star gets to start that game.

Koeman will want to play his strongest 11 each game right now. Van de Ven has impressed a lot but perhaps the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Ake have more chemistry with each other right now.
