“There are not many players who could receive the ball and who could make a defender s*** their pants,’” he said.

“Gakpo is one of them.”

“I agree, after the last game we needed a reaction and today was a good step in the right direction.

    Cody lighting up the Euros. What a player.
    As a defender, you don’t want this guy running at you.
    A huge tactical error by Romania was having a lone DM in the person of Marin. It set the stage for Cody and Simons to run riot, and they did. Cody in particular found much space between the lines, and inflicted maximum damage.
    Dragusin and his Romanian comrades in defense will be having nightmares about Gakpo for weeks to come.
