Depay was forced off against Poland in the UEFA Nations League in the second half by manager Louis van Gaal and was not in the Netherlands next clash against Belgium and it was confirmed that he would return to Barcelona.

De Jong was a substitute against Poland, he was introduced to the game that way for precautionary motives, However, soon it emerged that the midfielder, too, would play no further part with the Dutch national team and would return to Barça.
