English fans are yet to see the best of Cody Gakpo in the Premier League, but it is the Liverpool forward they will fear as the Netherlands’ biggest threat in Wednesday’s Euro semi-final. Gakpo has shrugged off an indifferent season at club level to shine once more for his country on the biggest stage of a major international tournament.

Restored to his favoured role on the left side of the attack for his national team, Gakpo has arguably been the player of the tournament so far. “I play on the left wing. In Liverpool I played a lot as a striker, so I think that’s the most different thing,” said Gakpo on the contrast between his form for club and country. “I was a left winger before, so that’s always been my preference. I think in the last one-and-a-half years the coach needed me to play somewhere else and that’s what I try to do the best I can.”
