สมัคร แทง บอล ออนไลน์ Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has been appointed captain of the Netherlands.

Dutch boss Ronald Koeman confirmed Van Dijk as his new skipper ahead of Friday night's friendly against England in Amsterdam.

The pair previously worked together at Southampton and when speaking about his former boss Van Dijk was full of praise.

"Everybody knows he gave me a chance at Southampton and I am very grateful for what he has done for me so far in my career," Van Dijk said.

"To be named captain of Holland is something very special and it does a lot for me. I hope I can just keep going and get better every day."

Van Dijk moved to Liverpool from Southampton in January for £75m in what was the highest fee ever paid for a defender and has made a solid start to his career at Anfield. สมัคร แทง บอล ออนไลน์

"I don't know if the move helped with it but the manager gave his explanation why he [Koeman] chose me as a captain," said Van Dijk.

"And the only thing I do is work hard every day and try and do well for Liverpool, that is the main thing. I just try to get the maximum of myself and don't regret anything when I retire."

The 26-year-old could face Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson in Friday's friendly against England and the defender admitted he may look towards his club captain for inspiration.

"I have been working already with many good captains in my career so far and you take every little bit that makes you better with you," Van Dijk added.

"Jordan is a great captain he has done very well for Liverpool and obviously I look at things he does and hopefully he can make me better as well." สมัคร แทง บอล ออนไลน์

A celebration of Paul Scholes’ goal against Barcelona – his greatest ever


sbobet asian A decade has passed since Paul Scholes scored an Earth-shattering long-range goal for Manchester United against Barcelona. For reasons of context and timing, it should be remembered as his greatest ever. Cast your mind back to the middle of the 2005-06 season. Manchester United captain Roy Keane has left the club after ruthlessly criticising his team-mates in a never-broadcast interview.

With Keane now at Celtic, Alex Ferguson picks an assortment of untested central midfield combinations, highlighting a worrying lack of squad depth. Rookie Darren Fletcher, converted striker Alan Smith, utility player John O’Shea and winger Ryan Giggs all make a surprising number of appearances in the middle of the park. United’s most talented player in that position, Paul Scholes, is ruled out for the season in late January with a diagnosis of double vision. He is, at this point, 31 years old.

It’s hard to pin down an exact moment, but somewhere around this time, somewhere around getting into his 30s, missing games and seeing — albeit blurrily — John O’Shea taking his central midfield berth, Paul Scholes stops being a goalscoring midfielder. There seem to be a few reasons why this happens: declining pace, the loss of reliable defensive cover provided by Keane, changing tactics. Whatever the causes, these changes produce a slow transformation. Scholes the box-to-box midfielder is, with his feet up for the remainder of the season, becoming Scholes the deep-lying playmaker. He scored goals, my lord, he scored goals. But he will now score far fewer.

Paul Scholes 2.0
With his vision restored, 2006-07 marks something of an encore for goalscoring Scholes. Although a return of seven goals in 45 appearances is modest, one of those happens to be a thunderous volley from 25 yards, the second in a 3-0 win at Aston Villa. For some fans, that memorable strike remains the midfielder’s greatest goal. And by some metrics, it probably is: the technique is flawless, the beauty unparalleled, the unintentional Gavin McCann assist commendable. sbobet asian

It goes in off the crossbar, for goodness’ sake!
But for all those goal connoisseurs who value the intrinsic qualities of a strike, there are those that call for a more all-encompassing definition of a ‘great goal’ — one that includes context. The second strike out of three in a pre-Christmas league match? For all of that volley’s qualities, its relative meaninglessness counts against it.

The 2006-07 season finishes with United winning the league and losing the FA Cup final to Chelsea, an extra-time Didier Drogba strike proving the difference. Match of the Day’s ‘Goal of the Season’ award goes to Scholes’ team-mate Wayne Rooney. Although he will not retire permanently for another six years, Scholes will never score five league goals in a season again.

2007-08 is an exciting season for United. Owen Hargreaves arrives from Bayern Munich, Carlos Tevez arrives from some organisation or other and future world-beaters Nani and Anderson arrive from Sporting CP and Porto. It’s an exciting season for Scholes too, albeit a strange one. On August 15, in United’s second league match of the season, the ‘Ginger Ninja’ scores in a 1-1 draw at Portsmouth. It’s a brilliant finish, but he won’t add to that single Premier League goal all season.

April 29, 2008. Ten years ago this week. After defeating Roma in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, United have taken a 0-0 away result into the second leg of their semi-final against Barcelona. This Barcelona side will thwart United multiple times over the next few seasons, but not tonight. The 14th minute. In a desperate attempt to keep Ronaldo at bay, Barcelona right-back Gianluca Zambrotta prods a left-footed clearance into the middle of Barcelona’s half. sbobet asian
