He obtained his first 2 caps while playing at the second level. In the summer of 1966 he was chosen, as second level player, as Dutch Football Player of the Year, far ahead of Eddy Pieters Graafland, Piet Keizer and Johan Cruijff. That was partially due to his performance in his first international match, the 100th edition of the Derby der Lage Landen in which he had been the best player on the field. Unfortunately, his career ended shortly afterwards due to a terrible knee injury.
