FOOTBALL - Today is Dennis Bergkamp’s 43rd birthday. His last international game against The Netherlands was against Italy at Euro 2000. Which two other Dutch players also featured in that game and would not play another international game for Holland?
FOOTBALL - Precisely 20 years ago, in 1992, Ajax thundered past FC Twente 7-0. Dennis Bergkamp scored a hat-trick, Louis van Gaal was only starting to mould Ajax in a force that became the eventual 1995 Champions League winner. And Twente were less respected than they are today. What a difference 20 years make. These two teams fought for the title in each of the last two seasons, Twente winning it in 2010 and Ajax in 2011. This year, they are again involved in a dogfight over the Dutch top flight crown.
