Player report: Pasveer and Van Dijk excel, including a few student tens

In its last game before the World Cup, the Dutch team secured a group win in the Nations League. Virgil van Dijk was the match winner against Belgium: 1-0. VoetbalPrimeur distributes figures to the Orange.
Remko Pasveer — 8: Pasveer exuded calm and did a good service with a view to the World Cup. His best rescue was after 66 minutes at a stake by Onana. While building up, he did not take any major risks, but retained possession of the ball.
Jurriën Timber — 7: He immediately had a good intervention on Eden Hazard, who then knew that there was little to achieve for him. Timber followed the Belgian stars – in addition to Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne – like a shadow across the field.
Virgil van Dijk — 8: Van Dijk was busy sending his teammates again. Where necessary, the captain intervened himself. With his good long ball on Taylor, he showed that he was able to do that too. The reward followed with 1-0.
Nathan Aké — 7.5: Defensively, what Aké showed was more than okay. In addition, he had a good play pass a few times, which posed some danger. He secured his World Cup base seat, but was changed after 45 minutes.
Denzel Dumfries — 6.5: He sought support from the referee a few times in the first half, but did not get it. With one such moment, he led in an opportunity for the Red Devils, among other things. After the break, he played more attacking and became dangerous once in a while.
Daley Blind — 7: Blind is often not spared, but to be honest: he was among the better players on the Dutch side on Sunday. The routine played easily in possession of the ball and was not defensively embarrassed.
Marten de Roon — 6.5: He played as a replacement for Frenkie de Jong and then the Orange logically takes off a jacket. Nevertheless, the hard-working De Roon did what could be expected of him, so he bothered Kevin De Bruyne, among others.
Steven Berghuis — 5.5: Belgium got its first shot at goal because Berghuis was asleep. The creative impulses had to come from him, but he didnt seem right at the lesson. After half an hour, he was unable to move on due to back problems.
Davy Klaassen — 5.5: You often don
t see him, but then he knows how to be important. With a little imagination, you could say that now, as he hindered Courtois from 1-0, but otherwise it was thin.
Vincent Janssen — 6: He was playable, wriggled his way past his opponent once and tried to take the goal under fire. Janssen is not the most sophisticated attacker, but he does not forsake.
Steven Bergwijn — 6: Mountain wine seems to be a bit concerned with its shape. He may lack some freshness, but the Ajax song was initially invisible against Belgium. After tea, he did find himself in a promising position a few times, but did not pull the trigger.
InvallersCody Gakpo — 7.5: He stood out in a positive way against Poland, but after his quick raid against Belgium, he needed time to get up to steam. However, Gakpo started to run better and better, with the highlights being his assist and lovely action in the final phase.
Tyrell Malacia — 6.5: Malacia came halfway into the field and did so surprisingly as a left centre-back. Sometimes it was a bit awkward and he didnt seem to be able to lose his egg completely, but that makes sense in a strange place.
Kenneth Taylor — 6.5: Taylor was allowed to compete half in his second international match. Not everything went well, but the young midfielder was very diligent again. With his two-legged and dynamic, he has his weapons.
Stefan de Vrij — x: Played too short for an assessment.
Ryan Gravenberch — x: Played too short for a review.
National coach Louis van Gaal — 7: Due to the absentia of Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay, Van Gaal was able to try something else towards the World Cup. Especially the midfield with De Roon and Klaassen seemed to lack some football ability, but the winning coach is always right.
