Awesome | Netherlands Players Train in Kit Of Their First Amateur Club

The 25 players of the Dutch national team took to the training ground on Friday wearing not the usual training top.

National Football Day - Dutch Players Wear Kit of Their First Club

Every player of the Netherlands national team wore the kit of his first-ever amateur club. This was an idea of Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) to officially kick off 'National Football Day' (De Nationale Voetbaldag). The KNVB called on all football fans to kit themselves out in the shirt of their former amateur club to highlight the social value of football.

De Jong x ASV Arkel, de Ligt x FC Abcoude, Daley Blind x AFC Amsterdam

For example, Frenkie de Jong wore the shirt of ASV Arkel, Steven Berghuis donned the shirt of LAC Frisia 1883 while Manchester City’s Nathan Ake stepped out in a VV Wilhelmus shirt.
