DID YOU KNOW ?

Although Sneijder was not born in Amsterdam, he started his career in AFC Ajax's famous youth academy. Following his older brother's footsteps, he signed for Ajax as a seventeen-year-old, initially on trial but impressed enough to be signed on a permanent basis.

In 2003 he became the eighth youngest player to play for the Netherlands in the history.

At the 2010 World Cup he won the Bronze Boot for his five goals and the Silver Ball for his performances - only beaten by uruguayan Diego Forlán.
