Manchester United left-back Tyrell Malacia is excited to be part of Holland’s World Cup squad.

“It’s a really big achievement [playing at World Cup]. I think I can’t describe that for myself. It’s amazing,” Malacia said.

“I think, of course, from the beginning when I won my first cap until now, they [the people back home] are so proud and really happy for me.

“Of course, he [Van Gaal] knows a lot and he helps us a lot. He talks with us a lot and has a lot of experience for the younger players to know. We also have some guys in the team who have already played at the World Cup.

“So I think our team has a bit of everything, you know. It’s difficult because, in tournaments, you never know as the team who has the best day wins. I think Memphis [Depay] for the Golden Boot. I’m excited.”
