New Manchester United Signing Donny Van De Beek Had A Game To Forget For Netherlands
Manchester United fans hoping for an encouraging display from new signing Donny van de Beek will be disappointed to learn he dropped a bit of a 'disasterclass' last night.
The former Ajax midfielder started for the Netherlands in their 1-0 defeat to Italy, with Nicolo Barella scoring the Azzurri winner at the end of the first half.
Van de Beek lasted 57 minutes in Amsterdam but was incredibly ineffective. In fact, he completed just five passes during his time on the pitch - two in the first half and a further three in the second before he was replaced by Spurs' winger Steven Bergwijn.
He also had a very good chance to equalise when the ball was cut back to him inside the box but the 23-year-old blazed the ball over the bar and failed to test Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Twitter was awash with reaction on Van de Beek's disappointing display:

Ahead of his switch to United, which fulfils the dream of his dying former coach and mentor Harm Grevink, Ajax fans gathered outside to say their goodbyes to Van de Beek.
Footage of the scenes was posted on Twitter and the former skipper finished by telling the fans to make sure the Eredivisie title stays with Ajax.
