In this international week, the Dutch squad sports two special cases in Jeffrey Bruma and Tim Krul. As both left for England at a young age, they have never played a professional league game in their native country. They are among the many talents who travelled but among the few who made it. This is the story of seven other outsiders, who wore the orange jersey without ever playing in the Dutch league.

Apart from Law Adam - who played for Grasshoppers when at University in Zurich but remained a member of HVV Den Haag in the early 1930s - no one from a foreign league was called up for the Dutch squad until Faas Wilkes, of Valencia, in 1955. Ten years later, Pierre Kerkhoffs, of Lausanne Sports, and Co Prins, of 1. FC Kaiserslautern, were the next and the first exponents of the exodus we know today.
