Virgil van Dijk thinks that Jurriën Timber during the World Cup in Qatar will make a name for itself in the international football world. The captain of the Dutch national team said in an interview with the FIFA expressed his praise for Timber.
In the interview, Van Dijk is asked which ‘not yet well-known’ Dutchman will shine at the World Cup. “I don’t think Jurriën Timber is known all over the world yet, but I’m sure that will change during the World Cup. He is a fantastic player, an excellent defender. Jurriën will attract a lot of attention during this World Cup,” said Van Dijk.
Whether Timber will make a name for itself at the World Cup on Monday remains to be seen. There is a good chance that not he, but Matthijs de Ligt will play against Senegal. This means that Timber will start on the bench in the opening match of the Dutch national team at the World Cup in Qatar.
In the same interview, Van Dijk also compliments former Ajax player Frenkie de Jong. I think Frenkie is one of the best midfielders in the world. He is excellent with the ball, but he also works very hard and has tremendous stamina. Hopefully he will be at his best in Qatar and he can inspire us to good results.’
