The fairytale story of Euro 2024 comes from the Dutch national team. However, it was triggered by drama.

Injuries have ravaged Ronald Koeman's squad, forcing him to call up replacements who were already on vacation. After replacing Frenkie de Jong with Ian Maatsen, Brian Brobbey also got injured.

Therefore, just four days before the first match at Euro 2024, against Poland on Sunday, Koeman called up Joshua Zirkzee. The brilliant young (23) forward of Bologna, who scored 12 goals and provided 7 assists, mostly against top clubs, leading his team to the Champions League and almost securing a transfer to Milan, was expected to be on the Euro roster.

Because of this, his agent Kia Joorabchian has been constantly calling him, even while Zirkzee was enjoying himself at Disneyland. So, when he received another call there, he was convinced it was about transfer negotiations, but he was left in shock. He was informed to urgently head to Germany. Now, he unexpectedly competes in matches against Poland, Austria, and France, with a debut for the senior national team on the horizon at a major tournament.
