Van de Beek ruled out of European Championship

Netherlands and Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek will miss this summer's European Championships due to injury.

Manager Frank de Boer will not be calling up a replacement for the tournament, which starts for the Netherlands on Sunday against Ukraine.

The Dutch will also face Austria and North Macedonia in Group C.

A statement from KNVB read: "Donny van de Beek has to let the European championship pass by. The Manchester United midfielder is struggling with an injury.

"As a result, the 19-time international, who last played minutes in Orange in March during Gibraltar – Netherlands (0-7), is not available in time for the European Championship.

"National coach Frank de Boer does not call for a replacement for Van de Beek."

Van de Beek, who was signed by United from Ajax last summer for an initial fee in the region of €40m, made only four Premier League starts for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in his first season.

Van de Beek was on the bench for the recent 2-2 friendly draw with Scotland but had not been training with the squad.
