Afellay chooses Stekelenburg, Van Hooijdonk shows different sound

Maarten Stekelenburg should be at the European Championships, says Ibrahim Afellay. Pierre van Hooijdonk thinks that national coach Frank de Boer chooses Tim Krul.
After the loss of Jasper Cillessen (corona), De Boer has to make an important knot. It‘s between Stekelenburg and Krul. Remarkably, Stekelenburg wears number one. โ€œNowadays, that doesn’t say much. You have players who like to play with a certain number. I don‘t think you should attach much importance to that, but I do think he’s going to be the number one goalkeeper,โ€ says Afellay at the CCEit.
Afellay argues his suggestion. โ€œHe has experience and exudes a lot of peace. He knows the whip. In the end, you want a goalkeeper who gives peace to your last line. His qualities are beyond doubt.โ€
Van Hooijdonk shows a different sound. โ€œI don‘t think so. Tim Krul won the matches in the run-up to the tournament. That’s a road you‘re taking. Stekelenburg has had a good half year at Ajax and has tournament experience. I think it’s a point of rest, but I think De Boer chooses Krul.โ€
