Imagine trying to beat Virgil van Dijk in the air.
What a horrible prospect for anyone – professional footballers included!
The best central defender on the planet is currently on international duty with the Netherlands, for whom he skippers – and proved his jaw-dropping athleticism in this clip which is now being shared across social media.
His team-mates captioned the video, ‘Only Michael Jordan and Virgil van Dijk can jump like this,’ which we think is probably fair!
Holland play Germany and Estonia over the next week, and while we’d like the Dutch to win, we’re predominantly interested in Virg and Gini Wijnaldum coming back unscathed.
