07 Jun

Netherlands is one of the front runners for EURO 2012. They possess a squad filled with devastating attacking players, as well as young prodigies, who will look to shine on the international stage.

Jetro Willems, 18, PSV Eindhoven (Netherlands), Defender, 2 international caps

Willems is the youngest player in the competition. At just 18 years, he has been thrust to th limelight, after impressive performances at left-back for his club. Blessed with pace and tenacity, he could be one of the brightest stars of the future.

Luciano Narsingh, 21, SC Heerenveen (Netherlands), Midfielder, 2 international caps

Narsingh, has become on of the sensations in the Dutch Eredivisie, with some fantastic performances for Heerenveen. His dribbling and pace, combined with his passing skills, have seen him rack up 22 assists and 8 goals, last season, and 9 assists and 5 goals, the season before that, where he was largely a peripheral.

Luuk de Jong, 21, FC Twente (Netherlands), Striker, 7 international caps

Already a prolific striker, back in the Netherlands, Luuk de Jong is being tipped for big things in European football, for years to come. Having burst into the scene, in Twente’s league triumph in the 2009/10 season with 7 goals, he followed it up with 20 goals in the very next season, and proceeded to score 32 goals last season. Calm and composed in the finish, he is blessed with great pace, and technique. His 25 league goals, was second highest in the Dutch league.
