Blind is versatile and tactically strong, but Wijndal has its power and speed.

Owen Wijndal makes a good impression on Arthur Numan. The former left-back of the Dutch team sees in the Azer a serious candidate for a base spot at the EK.Numan thinks that Wijndal is a keeper. โ€œI also think that the Netherlands needs a fixed leftback. It has been a little shifting over the past few years, although Blind has been the right man for that position,โ€ says the 44-fold international to DeccEit.
โ€œWhether Wijndal should stand? Of course, that
s up to De Boer. I think it also depends on the type of opponent. Blind is versatile and tactically strong, but Wijndal has its power and speed and he showed it to Spain for 90 minutes. Personally, I also like a dynamic wing defender. Theres a good head on him anyway, as you could see from the interview he gave after the game.โ€
Wijndal has a base place in the Nations League competition against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Sunday. โ€œIt is important for Wijndal that he continues to play a lot and preferably at a European levelโ€, says Numan. โ€œThen he can certainly be a candidate for a base place for the European Championships. And the experience of a final tournament alone can be worth gold to him.โ€
