Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is set to be the next big name in football, especially after his sensational debut
for Holland against Ireland where he capped a memorable night with two goals to hand the Netherlands a 4-0 friendly victory over Ireland, and yes it’s because of him Ruud Van Nistelrooy has lost his place in the Dutch squad, in fact many Holland fans wanted Huntelaar in their World Cup squad but for some reason unknown Van Basten decided against it.
