Two Inter players were involved in the Dutch national team’s recent emphatic win against Turkey, with Stefan de Vrij in particular having performed well during the fixture.

The Nerazzurri centre-back received a grade of 8/10 in the player ratings for the match published in today’s print edition of Dutch newspaper Tubantia, whilst his Nerazzurri teammate Denzel Dumfries was awarded a score of 6/10 for his efforts.

The Netherlands gave a statement of intend by beating Turkey by a large margin, with the team beginning to show impressive form under coach Louis Van Gaal, and de Vrij showed the defensive strength and quality in possession which has made him one of the first names on the teamsheet under a number of different managers for club and country.

Meanwhile, Dumfries was less assured, but the 25-year-old did show flashes of his quality and give a sense that he is starting to really find form and fitness.

“On the eve of the match against Turkey, there was much talk about the choice between Matthijs de Ligt and Stefan de Vrij,” Tubantia write. “Van Gaal opted for the latter and de Vrij did not disappoint the coach. He won all his duels, he didn’t allow Burak Yilmaz any space, and was constantly in the right place. 8/10”

Of Dumfries, they write that “As usual, he exerted a lot of energy. Denzel Dumfries was often difficult to mark for the Turkish defense with his runs down the right, exemplified by the first Dutch goal. The right-back is generally very careful in possession. 6/10.”
