Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has set the perfect tone as Netherlands captain, with the star opening the scoring for Frank de Boer’s side early on against Bosnia.
In a wonderful team move, Holland shifted the ball to the right-wing from the left, with Memphis Depay picking out the run of Denzel Dumfries.
The right-back showed his attacking quality with a touch before slotting the ball into the middle of the box, then came Wijnaldum’s show of brilliance.
The Liverpool star used a darting run to move to the left and punish a Bosnia defender for pressing the ball, leaving Wijnaldum free to slot the ball into the back of the net with a tidy finish.

Liverpool fans will be hoping that Wijnaldum can show this kind of clinical touch for them as well.
