The best player from the young lot in Holland?
He's Van Gaal's first name on the teamsheet when it comes to defenders.
Almost scored an own goal against Turkey but came storming back jumping on top of Van Gaal after the 2-0 roud:
Two assists going forward against Belgium on his debut. He's definitely progressed quickly.
He was funny to look at the beginning of last season at Feyenoord. His passing was ridiculous but it was clear that he was strong for his age. Since then his passing has improved, even when he plays at LB.
He was born in Portugal btw. His parents come from Guinea Bissau but he has lived in Rotterdam since he was 3 months old. Obviously a product of Feyenoord.
