Danjuma Receives Holland Senior Team Invitation


Club Brugge of Belgium attacker, Arnaut Groeneveld Danjuma has received the biggest motivation to commit his international future to Holland, as the in-form youngster has been invited to his adopted country’s senior national team.

Though born in Lagos and initially keen on playing for the Super Eagles, Danjuma has been severally courted by Holland, such that footballlive.ng noted how close he had come in recent months towards a senior call up.

The much-expected moment has now come, so soon after Danjuma stole headlines in the UEFA Champions League with a goal that has been nominated for the best of the week in Europe’s elite clubs’ competition.

With his stock now rising at club level, it was just a matter of time before the Dutch youth international got the nod to step up into the senior cadre, and he is now on the verge of a debut against Germany.

Danjuma was on Friday included by Le Oranje manager, Ronald Koeman in his final 25-man squad for upcoming games against Germany and Belgium.

The 21-year-old attacker-cum-winger is among four new faces named to the roster, along with the PSV trio of Steven Bergwijn, Denzel Dumfries and Pablo Rosario.

Should Danjuma make his senior debut for Holland in the UEFA Nations League against Germany next Saturday, October 13, he will become tied to the Dutch and ineligible to play for the Super Eagles ever again.

The former PSV youth team player, who has played for Holland in the European U21 Championship qualifiers, is now set to follow a different direction than Tyronne Ebuehi and William Troost-Ekong with the Eagles.
