Daley Blind is ahead of schedule: initially he was scheduled to make his return in the show off against Georgia next Sunday, but the defender is already training with the group to the surprise of national coach Frank de Boer.
Blind tore off his anklet at the end of March against Gibraltar and missed the season lock of Ajax, but he will make it to the European Championships. The recovery is even faster than expected, recognizes De Boer at ESPN. “Honestly, it does. It may be even more perfect than perfect.”
“I thought he could now be a bouncer at the training sessions, but yesterday (Saturday, red.) in Zeist he also participated with the group.”
De Boer doesnt know yet if Blind will get minutes on Wednesday against Scotland. “Every time you have to wait for the reaction. Because of an injury, you often walk a little differently, so other parts of the body also start to work. We look at it from day to day, but it looks very positive. The faster he can gain rhythm, the better.”
