The 707 games he played in the Eredivisie was a record.[citation needed] Jongbloed made 24 appearances for the Netherlands, winning his first cap in 1962 and last in the 1978 World Cup final.[1][2] He played with the Netherlands national football team at the 1974 and 1978 FIFA World Cups. He retired at age 45, due to a heart attack that he suffered while playing, and then worked as a football coach.[citation needed]
