After failing to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Netherlands are attempting to engineer a comeback in the UEFA Nations League, and with a win over France — who came out as the winners of that very World Cup — the Dutch can close in on a table-topping finish to Group A1 while relegating ribald Germany at the same time, according to The Express. But in their first Nations League match, France handed Netherlands their only loss in seven matches, making a win even more crucial in the game that will live stream from De Kuip.
To find out how to watch the live stream of the Netherlands vs. France UEFA Nations League Group A1 match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:45 p.m. Central European Time at the 51,000-seat Stadion Feijenoord, better known as “De Kuip,” in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on Friday, November 16. In the United Kingdom, the game gets underway at 7:45 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time on Friday. In the United States, kickoff will take place at 2:45 Eastern Standard Time, 11:45 p.m. Pacific. In India, the live stream may be accessed starting at 1:15 a.m. on Saturday, November 17.
France will be fielding a weakened side on Friday, with Manchester United pair Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial sitting out the match due to nagging injuries, according to The Independent, as will another English Premier League star, Arsenal’s Alexander Lacazette.
But for the young Netherlands squad, a win Friday coupled with a second straight downing of Germany would place Ronald Koeman’s side atop the most competitive group in the inaugural UEFA Nations League. But French Coach Didier Deschamps is not ready to let the Dutch bounce back, according to France 24.
“We are going there for the win,” he told the network. “We are the world champions and we will behave like it.”
