Football life is cruel and Gosens receives the full brunt of it. He was a starter for his NT and now he is completely written off from world cup at his prime age. It is very unlikely he will participate at the next WC being 32 years old. What is upsetting is he could be still called up if he left us last summer. We don't know if we persuaded him under false pretense or Gosens screwed up his chance since he cancelled his departure. Even more painful, his malfunctional teammates still get call-ups like Correa, Lukaku, De Vrij, or Dumfries while Gosens still plays well in the limited time and still acts professional as a team member.
