Wijnaldum Currently Ranks at the Top Of the Leaderboard in One Impressive Euro 2020 Stat

New Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has shined so far in the Euro 2020 tournament.

Wijnaldum helped lead the Netherlands national team to three key wins over the Euro 2020 group stage as he scored a trio of pivotal goals.

More so, the former Premier League winning-midfielder has continued to showcase his expertise as a ball-winner.

As noted by WhoScored, Wijnaldum won possession in the attacking third eight times over the Netherlands’ three group stage matches.

This figure for the veteran midfielder ranks most among all players so far in this tournament.

When Wijnaldum has been able to win the ball back while in the attacking third, he has done well in orchestrating quick transition attacking sequences for the Netherlands.

Overall, this aspect of Wijnaldum’s play style will certainly be a vital addition to Paris Saint-Germain’s midfield unit next season.

PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino will be able to play Wijnaldum in multiple midfield roles and regardless of whether he is positioned at, the Dutch midfielder has what it takes to win back possession with ease.
