Geert de Vlieger
Club:Willem II
Position:Goalkeeper

Following Filip de Wilde's calamitous showing at Euro 2000, De Vlieger assumed the mantle of his nation's number one.

He won his first international cap in a friendly against Greece in February 1999, after taking advantage of an injury to De Wilde.

But he was forced to leave Anderlecht knowing his inability to surpass De Wilde as first choice there made a national team spot untenable.

However, De Wilde's misfortune two years ago gave the understudy his chance earlier than was expected, and he has not looked back since.
