Selection for cup final

Selection for cup final

Frank de Boer has announced his selection for the KNVB Cup final on Sunday against PEC Zwolle in de Kuip. Compared to the last competition match against ADO, Daley Blind, Ricardo van Rhijn and Mike van der Horn are all included on the 18-man list.

Van Rhijn and Blind were suspended for the ADO Den Haag match, but are naturally included in the match selection against PEC Zwolle. Their return comes at the expense of Jairo Riedewald and Kenny Tete. Joël Veltman won’t be there on Sunday in Rotterdam due to a suspension. His spot will be filled by Mike van der Horn.

Ajax completed its last practice on Saturday in the Amsterdam ArenA leading to the cup final. It was an extensive session, which included practicing standard situations and various finishing exercises. Niklas Moisander participated fully, and seems fit enough to start on the squad on Sunday. It remains to be seen if that will actually happen.

Siem de Jong was also in the ArenA, but the captain is still training separately from the group with Pim van Dord.
