Athletic information


Stijn started to play soccer at the local soccer club DSV where he has always played for the highest teams of his age group. In 2016, at the age of 16, he was selected to play games with the first men’s  team of his club as well.


Since the start of his soccer career Stijn is the playmaker of his team. As a soccer player, he can best be described as a creative attacking midfielder with good technical skills. Stijn is very fast in his acceleration, able to rotate quickly, inimitable in his dribbles and always looking for the right assist. After intercepting the ball Stijn can quickly shift the game from the defense area to the attack area. Stijn is a real leader and in most seasons he was assigned as the team captain.


Stijn is a great admirer of Leonel Messi from FC Barcelona. He carefully observes the play of Messi to adopt the style of Messi as much as possible.
