The Reds failed to beat Real Madrid in the Champions League final previous year but kicked on after the painful defeat.

Van Dijk produced one of the standout moments of the final when he calmly dispossessed Son Heung-min when the South Korea worldwide looked to be clear on goal.

The striker said: "Physically I feel good".

Centre-back Van Dijk crowned a brilliant individual season by being named man of the match at the Wanda Metropolitano, where Kane was largely ineffective on his first appearance for nearly two months following an ankle injury.

"It's about time the Ballon d'Or was given to a defender", Koeman said.

"But I know also that, if you're not 100 per cent fit, then it's going to be in your head if you get a bit of a knock or you pass, and you get a little bit of pain".

"So from a point of consistency and from a point of success, for me Van Dijk would have to be the man". Van Dijk was named the PFA Player of the Season and is expected to be a serious candidate for the Ballon d'Or. I don't go into games thinking I don't want to get dribbled past. I'm ready. But ask anyone - both teams will say they're not 100 per cent because everyone has had a full season behind them'.

"I don't know if he's playing tomorrow, but if he will we'll see how we're going to manage them".

ENGLAND boss Gareth Southgate believes Holland are not all about Virgil van Dijk.

There has been a recovery in the past year, though, with Holland winning a Uefa Nations League group containing the last two world champions - France and Germany - to set up a semi-final meeting with England in Portugal on Thursday. Each one of them boasted some link to a more successful Holland team of old, but Guus Hiddink, Danny Blind and Dick Advocaat all failed in trying to stick to traditional Dutch football principles.
