Frank de Boer will take charge of the Netherlands for the first time when they host Mexico in an international friendly at 7:45pm (UK time).
Following the appointment of Ronald Koeman at Barcelona, De Boer was the surprise man to fill the void in the Oranje dugout. The former defender won the US Open Cup and Campeones Cup in 2019 with MLS side Atlanta United, but suffered a wretched start to the 2020 campaign, ultimately resulting in his removal from the job. His record in previous roles at Crystal Palace and Inter Milan aren’t too convincing, either.
In Mexico, however, he faces an opponent which he should know a fair bit about, with El Tri’s squad packed full of players from MLS and Liga MX. Interestingly, De Boer was also the successor to Atlanta United’s first-ever manager, Tata Martino, who is currently in charge of Mexico and delivered the Five Stripes’ 2018 MLS Cup title.
There’s plenty to unpack for this international friendly, so read on for our preview, predictions, team news and live stream information.

After very busy club schedules, the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Memphis Depay are likely to sit this friendly out, although Donny van de Beek could start having struggled for playing time so far at Manchester United.
Hirving Lozano isn’t part of this current international selection, but Wolves star Raul Jimenez could lead the line against some familiar European opposition.
