    Wijnaldum ahead of today's game:

    "We did not have a great build-up to the tournament. The hammering we got was ­something that led to discussions in the squad.

    “We spoke with all the ­players and the coaches about the ­critics. Fans and media are allowed to be sharp and critical. We had to face it because of the way we played against Scotland.

    “I like the real Dutch 4-3-3 system. That is where my heart is, with myself in an attacking role behind the front three. That was the way we played under Ronald Koeman and that was also the period where we were very successful again.

    “We got to the final of the Nations League, we beat teams like France and Germany.’’
