Van Gaal wants to play as much as possible against Poland in the World Cup line-up

The Dutch national team will play in as many positions as possible in the World Cup line-up that Louis van Gaal has in mind in the Nations League match against Poland on Thursday. Poland is the penultimate game before the World Cup starts in two months. Belgium is the last opponent in the Johan Cruijff ArenA on Sunday.

“I think you’re probably going to see the players who are going to play in the World Cup. And some players who have yet to earn that spot,” said Van Gaal. “There are players who are not in shape now, but were important in the World Cup qualification. But form is of course important.”

Van Gaal already has part of the basic team at the World Cup in mind. “Every player has to deliver. There are players who do have a guarantee, because they have always delivered. You can fill in those names yourself, I will not mention them. It is not good to make them public.”

The national coach thinks the defensive aspect is important in the last two games in the Nations League, he said. “We have scored a lot of goals under my leadership, but also conceded a lot.”
