The Dutch national team officially confirmed that they have recruited Alkmaar attacker Stens.
Stens was originally selected for the Dutch national team's primary squad this season, but he was not selected by the new coach De Boer in the final list.
Therefore, Stens was included in the squad of the Dutch U21 national youth team, and after Ihatalen and Berwyn were injured, De Boer chose to recruit Stens.
This injury and retirement has dealt a big blow to Ikhataren, because he was originally thought to make his debut in the Dutch national team in this month's European League.
Stens has made his debut for the Dutch national team in the European Cup qualifiers. He will follow the team in this month's matches against Mexico, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Italy.
