Timothy Fosu-Mensah has picked up his first international call-up for the senior Netherlands squad as a result of his impressive performances on loan at Crystal Palace.
He has been added to the squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against France and Bulgaria after doubts over the fitness of Kenny Tete who is struggling with a knee problem.
After originally being selected in the Netherlands U21 squad, he now has the chance to make his debut for the full national team.
Jose Mourinho has been keeping in contact with Fosu-Mensah and will be delighted of his recent news as he’s clearly making strong progress at Selhurst Park.
He has been performing exceptionally well under new Palace boss Frank de Boer and will be hoping to continue his good form over the course of the campaign.
Even though Palace have made a dreadful start to the season, losing 3-0 at home on the opening day of the season to newly promoted Huddersfield, then 1-0 at Anfield against Liverpool, many have been happy with Fosu-Mensah’s performances as he continues to give his all for the club.
He’ll be delighted with the call-up and hopes are he makes his debut as he deserves to be included in these squads, especially as he continues his development under De Boer.
