Ruud Krol - International Appearances


The outstanding Dutch player obtained 83 international caps with his National Team. He held the Dutch caps record from May 2, 1979 (when he equalled the total of Puck van Heel) until June 29, 2000 (when his total was surpassed by Aron Winter, who was brought as a substitute in a European championship semifinal by coach Frank Rijkaard with no other apparent purpose than that his friend Winter would take sole possession of the record). All matches are friendlies unless stated otherwise.
