Kluivert in match selection for the first time

Ajax will travel to Enschede with 19 players for the competition match against FC Twente.  Justin Kluivert is the most surprising name in the selection.  The 17 year-old forward is in the group for the first time.  Kluivert (jersey number 45) has been playing at Ajax since 2007 and has recently made his debut in professional football with the Ajax Reserves.  So far, he’s played four Jupiler League games, scoring one goal.

Daley Sinkgraven (ankle), Bertrand Traoré (thigh) en Vaclav Cerny (back) are not in the selection due to injuries.  Kenny Tete hasn’t been included, either.  The defender returned from the UEFA Europa League match against Standard Liège with some ankle pain.

The complete selection for FC Twente - Ajax is:


Andre Onana
Diederik Boer
Joël Veltman
Davinson Sánchez
Heiko Westermann 
Nick Viergever
Mitchell Dijks
Matthijs de Ligt
Jairo Riedewald
