Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum came with their goals from Sunday against Bosnia and Herzegovina (3-1) in a select group of players who have scored at least twenty goals for the Dutch team.
The 26-year-old Depay ended up with his 20th goal in 58 interlands and the 30-year-old Wijnaldum is in seventeenth place after his two hits with 20 goals in 69 international. To take a new step forward on the top scoring list of all time, there must be at least four goals for both.
Kuijt and Van Basten following goals
Dirk Kuijt and Marco van Basten are the following goals. Kuijt is the number fifteen with 24 goals in 104 interlands and Van Basten stands with 24 goals in 58 interlands, as many interlands as Depay now, in fourteenth place.
Depay ended a series of six interlands with no goal against Bosnia. However, the attacker of Olympique Lyonnais is not only about goals. With 12 assists and 12 goals, he was directly involved in 24 goals in his last 24 performances for Orange.
Remarkable is the production of Wijnaldum lately, actually since he got a place under Ronald Koeman as an attacking midfielder and as De Boer also let him play against Bosnia and Herzegovina. Of the last 13 goals of Oranje, Wijnaldum made seven. As captain, he scored five times in three duels.
“ I did scoring without that band,” Wijnaldum said after the duel with Bosnia. Take a look at the interviews with Wijnaldum and Depay and see also the excerpts about Wijnaldum and Depay in Studio Voetbal.
