Taylor was one of the few who reached his level in this competition. The midfielder managed to score twice, in addition, the Orange international also gave an assist.

‘Kenneth Taylor was very good against Emmen at Ajax’, Meerdink starts. And that right before it World Cup. He always plays to the right color, plays calmly under the crowd, can accelerate well with and without the ball and knows what to do on which part of the field.’

Meerdink believes that Louis van Gaal has made a good choice by taking Taylor to Qatar. “It is well deserved that he is already in the World Cup selection, after Alfred Schreuder dared him before and he repaid that confidence,” says the former footballer.
