The talented centre-back has previously represented his country at U19, U17, U16 and U15 levels and will hope to make his senior debut during this set of fixtures.
De Ligt’s call-up comes despite the fact that he has mainly been involved at youth level for Ajax this season as opposed to the senior side.
Indeed, he has made just 13 first-team appearances this campaign across all competitions.
However, the youngster has certainly demonstrated that he is capable of making an impact when called upon and was named man of the match in the 2-0 victory over Copenhagen in the Europa League last night.
