[World Cup] Key Player Review: Netherlands – Daley Blind

Daley Blind is an extraordinarily gifted footballer. Capable of playing left-back and in the centre of midfield, both problem positions for the Netherlands, Louis van Gaal probably wishes he could field the Ajax youngster in both roles.

Van Gaal looks set to field a three-man defence, and therefore Blind could be fielded in a wing-back role. This might suit him perfectly—he can demonstrate his defensive ability but also his good passing range.

Alternatively, he can play centrally and offer more guile than Nigel de Jong and Jonathan de Guzman.
