Gregory Van Der Wiel

One of the mainstays of Holland’s Euro 2012 qualifying push, Van der Wiel played in all ten games on the road to this summer’s finals as he confirmed his place as a first pick in Bert van Marwijk’s line-up.

This young man has enjoyed a rapid rise to international stardom as he only made his senior Holland debut in March 2009 and went on to play a central role in their run to the World Cup Final the following summer. Often compared to ex-Barcelona and Holland star Michael Reiziger, he is a right back who loves to burst forward.

Van der Wiel is known for his love to the social network site Twitter and while his comments have proved to be contentious from time to time, he enjoys the interaction with his supporters and is always full of opinions when he has either played in a game or watched a match on TV.
