Gini Wijnaldum was in brilliant form for his country last night as the Netherlands beat Belarus 2-1 in European Championship qualifying.
In a side that contains Virgil van Dijk, Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay, Wijnaldum is the main man at the moment, and his recent record is exceptional for a midfielder.

Many Reds fans would like to see Wijnaldum play further forward for the Reds. It has not happened often, but with Naby Keita fit, it could be something seen more frequently.
Wijnaldum with freedom as the furthest forward midfielder as he plays for Holland (9 goals+assists in his last 10 caps) with Keïta (when fit) & Fabinho behind him would be lethal
Klopp tested that combo vs Bournemouth last season & destroyed them
Will move LFC up another level.

Fans of the Reds, and some other teams too, were suitably impressed with his performance last night.
Judgement of Wijnaldum separates the tactical minds from the rest. Call it pseudo-intellectual nonsense all you like but you can’t argue with reality. He’s the ultimate professional – a managers dream.

Still away but got some time to watch the Netherlands game. Mallen looks like he could be a real talent but Gini Wijnaldum is nothing but class. Top, top midfielder. One of the best in the premier league and he continues to prove this. Elite all-round midfielder.

Wijnaldum is almost certain to start for the Reds against Manchester United when the Premier League is back next weekend. Hopefully he’s saved a goal or two for that match.
