Jan Jongbloed (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈjɑn ˈjɔŋ.blut]; born 25 November 1940 in Amsterdam) was a football goalkeeper with the Netherlands national football team at the 1974 and 1978 FIFA World Cups, wearing the number 8 jersey.

Career[edit]

Jongbloed was known as a mobile goalkeeper who would often act as an extra defender, in the style of Gyula Grosics. In terms of clubs, he played with DWS (later FC Amsterdam), Roda JC and Go Ahead Eagles. The 707 games he played in the Eredivisie is still a record.

Jongbloed made a total of 24 appearances for the Netherlands, winning his first cap in 1962 and last in the 1978 World Cup final.[1][2] He retired at age 45, due to a heart attack that he suffered while playing, and then worked as a football coach.

Personal life[edit]

Jongbloed was married twice and twice divorced; he has a daughter Nicole.[3] His son Eric was also a football goalkeeper with DWS. He was hit by lightning, aged 21, during a match on 23 September 1984.[4]
