Watch: Clip of Micky van de Ven’s incredible game-winning block vs Turkey goes viral

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur defender Micky van de Ven continues to shine for the Netherlands in Euro 2024.

Despite not being a regular starter under Ronald Koeman, Van de Ven has made impactful contributions off the bench, featuring in four games.

In the quarter-finals against Turkey, the Netherlands secured a dramatic 2-1 comeback victory. Van de Ven was introduced as a substitute, playing 17 crucial minutes.

As shown in the following clip, Turkey’s forward sent a dangerous low cross into the box, which goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen managed to parry away in the closing stages.

The ball, however, fell to Zeki Celik, who appeared certain to score into an open net. Van de Ven made a clutch game-saving block, ensuring the Netherlands’ lead and their progression to the semi-finals.
