Netherlands vs USA: Memphis Depay, Robin van Persie and Daley Blind start

by Sam Peoples

Memphis Depay, Robin van Persie and Daley Blind all start for the Netherlands tonight in their international friendly against USA.

Manchester United are buzzing to see Memphis in action and it’s great to see both Van Persie and Blind in the starting XI too.

Memphis is likely to play wide left which is the position he played for PSV all of last season. As for Van Persie, he’ll start up front where he always does and Blind will slot in at left-back, the position he traditionally plays for Holland.

Here’s the full starting XI:

It should be an exciting game for fans simply because it will be the first time lots of them have seen Depay in action. Out on the left, he will cause USA’s defence lots of problems and if he can get the opportunity, there’s every chance he might score a free-kick as well.

Kick-off tonight is 7.30pm GMT and the game is live on MUTV.
