Video: Virgil Van Dijk Was Very Impressive For Holland Against Portugal Last Night

Virgil van Dijk was very impressive for Holland in their win over Portugal last night.

The Liverpool defender was handed the captaincy of his country by manager Ronald Koeman for the friendly against England on Friday night.

And he kept that armband for their friendly with European champions Portugal last night, scoring on Holland’s way to a 3-0 victory.

Van Dijk always plays at a high level, but he stepped it up a notch by cancelling out Cristiano Ronaldo and some of the quality attacking talent in the Portugal team.

Highlights of the performance will make every Liverpool supporter watching very happy as he returns to the club this week ahead of their clash with Crystal Palace at the weekend:

Holland now have a deserved captain in van Dijk and that can only help take his game to another level for country and club.

They disappointed in the defeat to England last week, but were much better last night and that bodes very well for Koeman too.
