This Euro has some nice surprises in store for the general public. In Italy, the crowds are igniting midfielder Manuel Locatelli. In the Netherlands, the sensation is named Denzel Dumfries (25). The PSV dragster has been in the national team since 2018 (21 caps, 2 goals), but this Euro could well give his career a huge boost. Right side in the 5-3-2 set up by Frank de Boer, the native of Rotterdam seduces with his very offensive profile.
Author of 2 goals and an assist in 2 matches with the Oranje, Dumfries is involved in the 5 goals scored by his team since the start of the competition. “It’s starting to sound like a childhood dream what’s happening to me… But tonight (Thursday), the three points are the most important. We started this Euro very well, and now we have to stay focused. Tonight (Thursday), you can see that we learned from our first game. We played hard, both offensively and defensively with this clean sheet ”, he said yesterday after the game against Austria.

Already tracked by Manchester United in 2019, by AC Milan in 2020 and announced in the sights of the new coach of Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann, Denzel Dumfries also has the advantage of being efficient in a damaged sector of the game. On paper, he has everything to land a nice transfer this summer.
