Liverpool fans react as van Dijk withdraws from the Netherlands squad

Virgil van Dijk helped the Netherlands secure their place in Euro 2020 against Northern Ireland on Saturday but he has now withdrawn from the national team squad.

Ronald Koeman’s side are due to take on Estonia on Tuesday but will be without their skipper, who is unable to play due to “personal reasons”.

While hoping that his issue isn’t a serious one, fans are pleased by his early return as it reduces the fatigue he will have experienced from playing another match, and prevents the possibility of injury.

Should the reasons that ruled him out be solved, he will be ready to play against Crystal Palace next weekend, which is important for the Reds given they are without Joel Matip.

One fan is also hoping the same happens to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Gomez, who both featured for England against Montenegro on Thursday before the former started again on Sunday, though given their lack of game time this season any minutes on the pitch should be good for them.
