"Virgil Van Dijk is the best defender in the world today. He's amazing with the ball. I go to him after training and ask questions and he is willing to answer all my questions.

I am blessed to be able to do that every day." - Ki-Jana Hoever on Virgil Van Dijk via Bleacher Report App

🇰🇪 Vincent Titus
"If I wasn't devastated by not qualifying, I'd be happy with the performance. I actually expected less from us, I think we played a great game.
