Orange player report: three highlights, including Van Gaal, 6 is lowest grade

The Dutch team has completed the crucial international week with a sampling in Turkey (6-1). FootbalPrimeur reports on a beautiful evening at the Johan Cruijff Arena.
Justin Bijlow – 6,5: it‘s a cliche, but it seems like Bijlow has been under the Orange bar for years. The Feyenoorder also made a calm impression against Turkey and stood there when Turkey had one of the few opportunities. Had gotten a point higher if the 6-1 โ€” due to his hands โ€” had been left out.
Denzel Dumfries – 7: the EC revelation is not yet in the play at its new club Internazionale, but after his strong performance against Montenegro also showed that Dumfries should be taken into account in Milan.
Stefan de Vrij – 8: was preferred over Matthijs de Lig and repaid Van Gaal’
s trust. In this form, no one doubts, but no one has any doubts about De Vrij in the Orange base.
Virgil van Dijk – 7.5: just like De Vrij, did not get into trouble against Burak Yilmaz, who is normally so surefire against Orange. It was very telling that Yilmaz didn‘t even enter the air duels with Van Dijk at some point. Two blemishes: his yellow card and ankle injury.
Daley Blind – 6,5: received a lot of criticism after his off-day against Norway and saw Tyrell Malacia debut fine against Montenegro, but straightened his back in ‘
his‘ Amsterdam on Tuesday night. But Blind looks a bit heavy on the legs.
Frenkie de Jong – 7: just like Norway (1-1) and Montenegro (4-0) a large enough enough enough for De Jong, who captured many balls. After the first half he stayed in the locker room.
Davy Klaassen – 9: In his 27th international country he played his very best football in the Orange shirt. Klaassen broke the ban very fast and then led Memphis 2-0 and 3-0. The perfect night.
Georginio Wijnaldum – 6: Criticism of his functioning in Orange has been swelling lately and that is not without reason. Wijnaldum is not nearly as compelling as before, even against a weak Turkey.
Steven Berghuis – 8.5: This is how compelling we rarely saw Berghuis in the Dutch team. Maligned, protected by Van Gaal and now excellent… Erik ten Hag can wet his chest: the Ajax trainer can’
t actually pass the attacker in this form.
Memphis Depay – 9.5:30 goals and 21 assists in his last 45 interlands, we don‘t have to say more. Stop downplaying Memphis’s role in Orange. The game ball will go back to Barcelona tonight.
Steven Bergwijn – 7.5: Cody Gakpo‘s replacement played his first interland since September 2020 and did not disappoint. Mountain wine caused Turkish defence problems and was important with an inswinger in Memphis’s 4-0.
InvallersTeun Koopmeiners – 6.5: fell in for Frenkie de Jong at the start of the second half. In his second interland, he gave his first assist, to former AZ buddy Guus Til. Koopmeiners did get caught doing some sloppy.
Donyell Malen – x: fell in for Mountain Wine after 61 minutes and signed for the 6-0, but played too short for a review.
Guus Til – x: fell in for Wijnaldum after 61 minutes and scored, but played too short for a review. It was his first intercountry since spring 2018.
Ryan Gravenberch – x: fell in for Klaassen after 70 minutes and played too short for a review.
Devyne Rensch โ€” x: fell in for Dumfries after 70 minutes, gave an assist, but played too short for a review. May come pick up his petlock afterwards, because Rensch debuted.
Federal coach Louis van Gaal – 9: It was a long, very long time since Orange swirled in an important match. And that is largely due to Van Gaal, who started his second, third, maybe fourth childhood. As icing on the cake, his name was scanned for minutes in the final phase.
