Club career[edit]

Arsenal[edit]

Born in Rotterdam, Netherlands, Ebecilio started his youth career at Feyenoord when he was seven.[2] Ebecilio soon attracted interest from Premier League clubs[3] and eventually joined Arsenal in 2010.[4] In 2011, Ebecilio signed his first professional contract with the club.[5] In November 2011, Ebecilio felt it was time for him to make his breakthrough at Arsenal.[6]

In May 2013, Ebecilio was offered a new contract with the club after years at the club's academy.[1] Meanwhile, other clubs were interested in signing Ebecilio.[7][8]

Twente[edit]

In May 2013, Ebecilio signed a five-year contract with FC Twente, returning to his homeland after three years in England.[9]

Ebecilio made his professional debut on 3 August 2013, coming on as a substitute for Dario Tanda in the 60th minutes, in a 0-0 draw against RKC Waalwijk.[10] Ebecilio scored his first professional goal in the next game, in a 4-1 win over Feyenoord.[11] Later in his first season, having been ever-present in this season, Ebecilio scored six more goals against Heracles,[12] NAC Breda,[13] PSV Eindhoven,[14] Roda JC Kerkrade,[15] N.E.C.[16] and PEC Zwolle.[17]

In his second season at Twente, Ebecilio added two more goals against Utrecht on 28 September 2013[18] and AZ Alkmaar on 5 October 2014.[19] In December 2014, Ebecilio clashed with Manager Alfred Schreuder resulting in him being left out of the squad for four matches.[20] Ebecilio scored on his return, in a 2-1 win over Cambuur on 31 January 2015.[21]

International career[edit]

Ebecilio has represented Netherlands at various youth levels, from under 16 to under 21.[citation needed] In the UEFA European Under-17 Championship, Ebecilio scored three goals in the tournament that earned him "Best Player Award".
