The Dutch never had showed this degree of confidence in himself same and neither a level of tarpaulin so big of face to door. So much with the Low Countries as with the FC Barcelona is going out and already there is who says that for the time being it is between the best footballers of all the world.
Against Turkey, the Dutch annotated an impressive 'hat-trick' and delivered an assistance to contribute to the goleada of his by 6-1. Besides, with his three targets achieved something that put him to the height of the best Dutch player of the history. With these three so many, the one of of Moordrecht arrived to the 33 with Low Countries and equalised to Johan Cruyff, that along his career also annotated 33 with his country.
In addition to to the legend of the Barça, of Holland and of the Ajax, Memphis also equalised to Abe Lenstra, that was one of the big stars of the combined 'oranje' in the decade of the 40 and 50. However, in spite of these attainments, the player did not want to boast and left clear that in spite of everything is not to the height of these myths. "Those are two legendary players, can not compare to anybody more with them", commented.
After equalising to Cruyff and Lenstra, Depay has right now to other eight players by in front in the list of maximum goleadores historical of Low Countries.

Afterwards they will arrive Arjen Robben and Dennus Bergkamp, with 37; and to continuation the 'Top 3', that is really the big aim that has the forward right now.

"For me it is genial be between the ten first and now will try to be between the three first", affirmed the attacker of the Barça. It fits to say that Patrick Kluivert, third maximum artilleryman of Holland, annotated 40; Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, second, put 42; and Robin van Persie, first, marked 50. The ex of the Arsenal or of the United is far of the culé right now, but with 27 years that has and playing as it is doing it, no descarta that it can reach him.
