Dutch-born Ghanaian defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has shared his thoughts of the on-going EURO 2020 championship. 

The championship which was delayed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic started on Friday night with Italy cruising to a 3-0 victory over Turkey.

One player missing the tournament is Fosu-Mensah of Holland, but whiles on holidays in Ghana, he spoke about the chances of the Netherlands and his excitement for the start of the tournament.

"I think it will be a good Euros," he told Raymond Nyamador of ETV Ghana. "It will be an interesting interesting tournament."

Although Fosu-Mensah could not make Holland manager Frank de Boer's team for the Euros, the Dutch-born Ghanaian is confident of the chances of the 1988 champions.

The 23-year-old also believes the hopes of the Oranges lie of another Dutch-born Ghanaian, Memphis Depay.

"I think it's a very good team. They've had injuries as well, the captain Van Dijk is injured and now Donny Van de Beek left the camp with injury but they have a good team and a good coach.

"They can work in different systems, and definitely they are a team to watch and have a chance at the Euros. I will be supporting them."

Fosu-Mensah currently plies his trade in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen after leaving Manchester United in January following a five year stint.
