Van Dijk was injured by a rash tackle from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who has since apologized. The 29-year-old Liverpool player sat on the floor for minutes with a sore right knee and had to be replaced.

In a statement, the 38-time Oranje-international indicated that he is trying to switch the button as soon as possible. “From now on I will fully focus on my recovery and want to be back as soon as possible,” he writes Twitter.

“Despite the understandable disappointment, I believe that in difficult moments there are also opportunities. With the help of God I will make sure that I come back better, fitter and stronger than ever.”

Van Dijk is a security at the center of the back at Liverpool. The last time he missed a Premier League game was in early 2018.

The European Championship starts for the Dutch national team next year on June 13. Van Dijk has been the captain of Orange since 2018.
