No use playing 5 defenders against Costa Rica. My only concern is De Jong. He is so key for the defense.

I think if there is no NDJ then you guys probably would need to play 5-3-2.. n/kuyt tho. Specially not as a lwb

Lets assume De Jong wont be fit on time, Verhaegh played his last match and Janmaat will be available again. I believe it could look like this:

-----Persie---Robben
---------Sneijder
----Blind-------De Guzman
Kuyt---------------Janmaat
----Indi-Vlaar-De Vrij

Sneijder had a poor game against Mexico until he scored btw. I felt like another bad Sneijder preformance would mean Van Gaal replaces him with Depay in a 5-2-3 system.

Blind-de Guzman is way too lightweight.

Clasie is the closest thing to Nigel that LvG has available (still miles away from Nigel level, such a shame). I think he is unmissable for this side.

Sneijder has put in a lot of dirty work to let RvP and Robben shine, he has covered 10+ km in every game so far. He won't be left out because he's got that extra class for a 10 that no one else in the squad can offer, and van Gaal won't play a 2 man mid, especially not w/o Nigel.

Memphis-RvP-Robben
Nigel/Clasie-Sneijder-de Guzman/Wijnaldum
Kuyt/Blind-de Vrij-Vlaar-Kuyt/Janmaat
Cilessen

I think is best

Kuyt was excellent against Mexico.

No kuyt please even if he was good last game. Start deepay for fuck sake and good lord, dont ned have one strong defensive midfielder apart from de jong? Apparently we are interested in acquiring that lanky twat fellaini by swapping him for de jong? What do u guys think. De jong is a class player but he is nearing 30. Its either the aforementiomed offer or a straight cash offer of 12-14 mil for de jong.

The way I see it, it should be The Costa Rica. 'The rich coast', not 'rich coast'.
