Eligibility for the Netherlands

Recommended Posts

Can anybody clarify the eligibility rules for the Netherlands please? I have a player I signed at the age of 17 and is now classes as Homegrown for my club (Ajax) and has recently become eligible for the Netherlands team. However I cannot call him up to the National Team as there is no option to add him to the National Pool.

Does the 5 years of residency rule only start on becoming a Dutch citizen and I have to wait 5 years before being able to call him up? As you can see he has nearly 6 years of residency and his days to eligibility is at 0.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Check his information page. He may not have taken Dutch citizenship. Or he may have declared himself for another team despite not yet being called up.
