Newcastle United defender Sven Botman admits he wasn’t too surprised to miss out on a 2022 World Cup place with the Netherlands this month – and is already considering a call-up when the country change sides manager in the coming months.

The summer signing has thrived at St James’ Park and is yet to taste defeat in a black and white shirt. However, Botman has not been called up to the national team to date and saw his chances evaporate when he retired from Under-21 service earlier this season in order to focus on his start to life at Tyneside. .

“Only because things have been going so well at Newcastle in recent weeks, of course I hoped. Unfortunately. Hopefully there will be new opportunities under the new national coach.”

Botman was pursued by AC Milan over the summer, but his transfer saga ended when Newcastle secured his signature in June. Many pundits and critics in his home country scratched their heads over the deal, saying they felt it was a side move for the former Lille man.

“I think there is a sort of ideal image in the Netherlands,” Botman continued. “A young footballer must first have played at the top of the Eredivisie for a few years and only then take the step abroad.

“For me, this road was not the ideal image, if only because I thought that I was not the type of defender who could break through at Ajax. The way I see it is that there is no ideal image.
