INTERVIEWS Bart Verbruggen is currently staying with the Dutch national team 'Ons Oranje'. Whether he will effectively make his debut in goal remains to be seen. In any case, Verbruggen is already looking forward to the Conference League game between Anderlecht and AZ.


The Dutc national team has also started its training sessions for the duels against France and Gibraltar, the first is only well underway when he already demonstrates a first save. "I'm not here on a school trip," the goalkeeper responded afterwards, "I was advised by the national coach to look around well, but I also want to show myself."

Verbruggen already played with the young national team but not yet with the "big boys".
"There are several injuries here in the selection, were it not for those, I might be back with the Jong Oranje now," Verbruggen remains level-headed.

Conference League

In April, RSC Anderlecht will meet Dutch AZ in the quarterfinals of the Conference League. Verbruggen is looking forward to the away game: "Then I finally play an official game in the Netherlands".
