Gakpo is building on his performances from last season, where he scored 21 times in all competitions for PSV. It was the best scoring campaign of his career so far and he is poised to top it again this season.
Former Dutch international Nigel de Jong was full of praise for Gakpo in his analysis of his goal against Ecuador. De Jong said on ITV: “He is a real talent.
“It was a great pass from [Nathan] Ake, this is what we like to see in Dutch football: breaking the lines. Brilliant touch, a bit self-inflicted on Ecuador’s part, but it was also a great shot from a difficult angle.
“This is the fit man for the Dutch team at the moment, especially when Memphis Depay is not yet fully fit. We need the creativity of other players and they have to rise to the occasion, and Gakpo is doing that in consecutive games. ”.
