The Netherlands travel to Poland for a UEFA Nations League clash at the Silesian Stadium in Chrozow on Wednesday evening.

On Sunday evening, The Dutch earned their first win under head coach Frank de Boer, as they dominated Bosnia and Herzegovina in a game they won 3-1.

Stand-in Dutch skipper Gini Wijnaldum scored twice in that game, before Memphis Depay made sure of the three points in the second half.

In the reverse fixture between these two sides, which was played in Amsterdam in September, the Dutch earned a narrow 1-0 win, thanks to a goal from Steven Bergwijn.

Both Poland and the Netherlands do still harbour hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Nations League, but are both dependent on Bosnia and Herzegovina to do them a favour in the other game in Group A1 against Italy.

A draw in that game would be enough for the Dutch to go through, if they beat Poland, while the hosts would need a Bosnian win to go with them beating the Oranje.

Poland were in a position of command in the group before their last game, but they were well-beaten in a 2-0 loss to the Azzurri in their last match, which has left them in a delicate spot in the group.
