Now that we have thoroughly discussed the seven American players in detail, The Orange Legionnaire will, every few days, take a look at each of the Dutch players who will wear the orange colors for Dayton this Spring. We will start this off with..

Geert Cornelius den Ouden
From Delft, Netherlands (a town of 96,000 between Rotterdam and the Hague in the province of South Holland)- Played for ADO Den Haag, Rotterdam, and many other top flight teams in Holland
Position: Forward

Geert den Ouden is a 33 year old forward with great experience in the Holland top flights, as well as the Swedish and Maltesian top flights. Den Ouden has 108 total goals in 317 total appearances, good for a very strong strike rate of less than one goal every three games, with most of these goals mainly coming in the Dutch top flight. Den Ouden played for four top flight clubs in Holland and found most of his success there. Here is what Den Ouden had to say about his stateside transition to DDL F.C.:

"At this moment I'm already seriously preparing myself for Dayton Dutch Lions FC. I play my games and I train full time with my youth club V.V. Smitshoek. And when I'm not on the soccer field, you can find me in the gym. I feel fighting fit, so I will be ready to play the Premier Development League for the complete 100% when I arrive in Dayton. Besides being motivated, I'm not the kind of person who likes to sit back and relax. I like daily exercise and training, that keeps me going. Lucky for me that's one of the important aspects a pro soccer player needs to be able to perform."

Here is Geert in action scoring against Feyenoord (go to minute 3:50):

So, how many goals do you see den Ouden scoring for DDL F.C. in 2010?
