The Netherlands are to begin their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign away to France, it has been confirmed.
The groups for Euro 2024 qualifying were drawn on Sunday, and the Netherlands were pitted against France, Republic of Ireland, Greece and Gibraltar.
The match schedule was announced by UEFA the following day and confirmed that Oranje will begin their journey to the Euros in the most difficult fashion possible.
Their first match will be against the reigning World Champions in France on March 24, and it will also most likely be the opening game of Ronald Koeman’s second spell in charge of his nation.
Things will then get easier for Koeman and co after that with the second clash being at home to Gibraltar three days later.
The Dutch will then face Greece at home and Ireland away in September before completing the reverse fixtures in October and November.
