BookmarkAMSTERDAM: Dutch winger Arjen Robben is dreaming of playing at the European Championship next month after the injury-prone veteran started his first match for FC Groningen in eight months on Sunday (May 9).The 37-year-old was the star of Groningen's 4-0 victory at FC Emmen as he delivered two assists in his longest appearance since his return to the Dutch top flight last year.

"When I started this last summer, it (Euro 2020) definitely was one of my wildest dreams", Robben said."It would be nice. But you have to be realistic, I would have to be properly fit and be of value to the team. We'll see."Advertisement headtopics.com

De Boer will name his preliminary squad for Euro 2020 at the end of this week, but has until June 1 to deliver his final list of 26 players for the tournament.Robben made the last of 96 international appearances in October 2017, when his double in a 2-0 win against Sweden proved insufficient to get the Dutch to the 2018 World Cup.

The Netherlands will play their first major tournament this year since finishing third at the World Cup in Brazil in 2014. Read more: CNA »
