Watch: Memphis Depay misses sitter for the Netherlands against Austria

Memphis Depay is a name familiar to many Barcelona fans. The Dutchman has been linked with the Blaugrana for over a year, with Ronald Koeman keen to execute a deal for him last summer and last winter only for it to be deemed financially impossible by the powers-that-be. Now a free agent after leaving Lyon, however, it seems imminent.

Memphis, as he prefers to be known, is currently at Euro 2020 with the Netherlands. They opened their campaign with a thrilling 3-2 win over Ukraine last weekend, and are this evening taking on Austria, a team led by now-Real Madrid player David Alaba. He’ll step in to replace Sergio Ramos, who departed the Santiago Bernabeu today.

Alaba’s evening didn’t get off to the best of starts, however, while Memphis’ did. The former gave away a penalty in the tenth minute that the latter converted with ease, putting the Netherlands in a first-half lead. He had an unfortunate moment five minutes shy of half-time, however, when he skied a clear chance, drawing the ire of many Barcelona fans online who are already (ironically) bracing themselves for disappointment.
