8. Adam Buksa (Poland) - 7.33 


Adam Buksa headed Poland ahead in their eventual 2-1 loss to the Netherlands, netting with one of two efforts on goal. The 27-year-old also won two aerial duels and made one key pass as he shouldered the attacking burden well. 


7. Nathen Ake (Netherlands) - 7.44 


Nethan Ake put in a fine shift for the Netherlands against Poland. The Manchester City man provided the assist for Cody Gakpo's equaliser, that coming from one of four key passes, and made a last man tackle to land a WhoScored rating of 7.44. 


6. Bart Verbruggen (Netherlands) - 7.74 


Netherlands were expected to dominate against Poland but they still needed goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen to impress between the sticks. The 21-year-old could do nothing to keep Adam Buksa out in the first half but made six saves in total at Volksparkstadion. 


5. Jaka Bijol (Slovenia) - 7.80
