DID YOU KNOW ?

At the age of 16 Jan Vertonghen moved from Belgium to the Netherlands - from Germinal Beerschot to Ajax, where he signed a contract with the youth academy.


He was selected for the 2008 Olympics and played in every match as the Belgians unexpectedly took fourth place.

Following goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg's transfer to Roma in 2011, Vertonghen was made captain of Ajax.
