Eric Van Meir



Eric Van Mier
An imposing defender who can operate in the centre or as a full-back, Van Meir has never really established himself since making his debut for Belgium in 1993.

A squad member at USA 94 and France 98, his battle to claim a regular international place has often been thwarted by Lorenzo Staelens.

Strong in the air and in the tackle, he perhaps lacks the flair needed at the highest level.

Van Meir moved to his current club, Lierse, in 1996 from Charleroi and helped them win the League Championship in 1997.

He has enjoyed great goalscoring success this season, and his long-range shooting could yet help him to become a valued member of Belgium's defence.
