Hail to the 80's with John DE WOLF

Everybody remembers John DE WOLF from his complete name : Johannes "John" Hildebrand de Wolf ? DE WOLF is a retired Dutch footballer, who earned six caps for the Dutch national team, scoring two goals. De Wolf began his professional career with Sparta Rotterdam, making his senior debut in 1983. After two seasons in the team, he departed for FC Groningen where he continued to impress and won a call-up to the Dutch national team in 1987. The defender moved on to Feyenoord in 1989 and after a season outside their first team, he settled into the side and won the Dutch league championship in 1992–93 with the club. He also won three Dutch Cups during a stay of four full seasons and made it to the 91–92 Cup Winners' Cup semi-final, which they lost on away goals against Monaco. He left for English First Division side Wolverhampton Wanderers in December 1994. He was swiftly made captain of the side by manager Graham Taylor, and helped them reach the FA Cup quarter-finals, as well as remarkably scoring a hat-trick from centre-back in one game against Port Vale. However, he soon suffered a knee injury that ruled him out of the promotion run-in and then his career droped in minor divisions. But John DE WOLF is also a unbelievable player with an outsanding look. When you look at the first years of his career this is a real tribute to the eighties, isn't it ?
