Frenkie de Jong's Individual Highlights Against England Prove He's The Best Midfielder In The World
Frenkie de Jong's stunning individual highlights against England in the UEFA Nations League semi-final prove he's the real deal at the tender age of 22.
The Dutch starlet ran the show in the middle of the park, dominating Declan Rice and Fabian Delph as his side secured a spot in the UEFA Nations League final on Sunday.
He not only retrieved possession but also distributed the ball beautifully. His range of passing and awareness is just remarkable.

The more I watch him play the more I get convinced that he's one of the best midfielders in the world at the moment. His awareness is just spectacular! FC Barcelona are lucky to have you :dizzy: pic.twitter.com/v3LsVlg8Rj
He's rated by many as the best midfielder in the world and Jamie Redknapp is fully on board with that sentiment.
"For me, he's the best midfielder in the world right now," he said in the build-up to the Netherlands vs. England.
"He's like Luka Modrić, he makes everyone around him look good. I'm such a fan. I think he's got everything."
Like the ex-Liverpool star, Italian icon Andrea Pirlo said last week that De Jong was one of the best midfielders in the world.
"At the moment, for me, Frenkie de Jong is the best," he explained.
"He has the personality, the technique, everything to play in this position."
Barcelona wasted no time in snapping up De Jong to a long-term contract. They secured his services during last season in a pre-contract agreement worth £65 million.
