Steven Bergwijn has been left out of the Netherlands’ 26-man squad for this summer’s European Championship.
There was a lot of hope among the Tottenham faithful about Berwijn last summer ahead of his first full season in a Spurs shirt.
The winger had shown plenty of promise in the second half of the 2019/20 season after arriving from PSV Eindhoven in January and was expected to kick on.
While he had a decent start to the season, beating competition to start in a front three along with Kane and Son for a run of matches, he eventually failed to do enough to keep his place in the side.
Bergwijn did come back into the starting eleven for Tottenham’s final two games of the season against Aston Villa and Leicester.
While the 23-year-old showed some glimpses of quality in the two matches which included a brilliantly taken goal to open the scoring against Villa, however he has not done quite enough to convince Frank de Boer that he deserves to keep his place in the Dutch squad.

This is a bitter blow for Bergiwjn, who was a regular in De Boer’s starting eleven 12 months ago. I would not be surprised that if the Dutchman, along with the likes of Ndombele and Winks push to leave Spurs this summer in order to get back into their respective national teams.
