5 Best Netherlands Players in World Cup 2022

Here we look into the top 5 Dutch players who could make a huge impact in the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

#1 Frenkie De Jong

Frenkie De Jong is arguably the best player in his position. The 25-year-old Barcelona holding midfielder is relentless with the ball, creating space, and moving forward with a fierce pace.

De Jong could be the engine of the midfield of any team he played. It’s a blessing to have him on your side and he could make a huge impact for the Oranje in the upcoming World Cup.

#2 Memphis Depay

Despite not being the first-choice for Barcelona, Memphis Depay will be the key man for the Netherlands attack in the World Cup.

Depay has been the talisman for the Oranje for so long, and he will be keen to score tons of goals in November in Qatar.

#3 Denzel Dumfries

Denzel Dumfries may not compete for the Golden Boot, but he will be a significant player for the Netherlands’ success in the FIFA World Cup.

This Inter right wing-back is strong and can make powerful runs into the box. The 26-year-old has scored a goal and assisted two in 9 matches for Inter in the Serie A; and another goal in the Champions League after 4 matches.

Dumfries also scored 2 goals and an assist for the Oranje in the Nations League this season.

#4 Steven Bergwijn

Steven Bergwijn is a prolific goal scorer and you will find him on the scoresheet for the Netherlands in the World Cup 2022.

The 25-year-old Ajax forward is a real threat from the left and has scored 6 goals in 9 matches in the Eredivisie this season; and another 2 goals in 4 matches in the Champions League.

#5 Coady Gakpo

We have another goal-scorer on our list who is a good pick for the Netherlands’ potential squad, Coady Gakpo. The PSV star Coady Gakpo has already scored 9 goals and 6 assists in 9 matches in the Eredivisie this season. The 23-year-old could be a star for the Netherlands in Qatar.
