The world is currently dominated by Dutch defenders, the biggest proof of this is Virgil van Dijk, who arrived last season at Liverpool for €86 million.

Nobody believed he would make a major impact, but his performances from last season were good enough to make him the best defender in the world.

There is even a conversation about Virgil getting the Ballon d’Or next season, which would be historic.
