Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek was initially named in Holland’s 26-man squad for the Euros but had to pull out of the squad due to a groin injury on Tuesday morning.
“As you may have already learned, I unfortunately had to leave the team due to a groin injury,” Van de Beek told his 2.2 million followers in a short video on Instagram.
“A big disappointment, especially because it would be my first European Championship and unfortunately I can’t be there now.
“I want to thank you for all the sweet messages I have received, it means a lot to me.
“I want to wish the players, the staff, and last but not least the fans a great European Championship.”
