The Netherlands centre half is one of the most coveted young footballers in the world

Joachim Low could only watch on as his side were torn apart by a rejuvenated Dutch side thanks to goals from Liverpool duo van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum, before a late third from Manchester United flop Memphis Depay.

The result leaves Ronald Koeman’s side on the brink of qualifying from their UEFA Nations League group, with de Ligt excelling.

And his display did not go unnoticed by some Liverpool fans, who called on Jurgen Klopp to reunite De Ligt with Van Dijk at Anfield.
