(Video) Manchester United target De Jong assists Bergwijn vs Belgium

There isn’t an international tournament taking place this summer because the World Cup was moved to the winter, which means we will be keeping a close eye on Manchester United players and potential transfer targets in the upcoming internationals.

In the Nations League tonight, the Netherlands had a convincing 4-1 win over Belgium. That meant we could watch two United transfer targets as Frenkie de Jong and Jurrien Timber both featured in the game.

De Jong played in a pivot against Belgium — very different to the role he’s struggled in at Barcelona — and they couldn’t contain him. Even for the first goal, the 25-year-old plays a simple pass to Tottenham Hotspur star Steven Bergwijn. It counted as an assist but credit to the winger for a great strike.

You may say we’re clutching for straws – it was hardly a pass that actually contributed to the goal because nobody, not even De Jong, expected Bergwijn to shoot — but try to look at the bigger picture.

De Jong doesn’t play a complicated pass. He keeps it simple and space opens up to allow his teammate to have a shot in front of goal.

Thankfully, for the Netherlands, they went on to win the game by a three-goal margin.
