5.- Frenkie de Jong

The AFC Ajax midfielder proved against England that he is in top form right now, he managed to deliver a stellar performance in the semifinal.

Frenkie is arguably one of the most complete midfielders in the world right now, he has skills that are already being compared to some of the best FC Barcelona midfielders in history.

De Jong has that unique ability to hold the ball for longer than usual, taking it from him has become one of the most difficult tasks that any defender has attempted this season.

The way in which De Jong accommodates his body when a rival is coming to take the ball from him is very reminiscent of true specialists in the craft.

De Jong will be one of the most important players for the Netherlands during this match, him having an inspired day will help his teammates get closer to the title.
