With his wonderful heel against SC Heerenveen (3-1) Feyenoord striker Bryan Linssen joined a select group last night. The 30-year-old Limburger made his 100th Eredivisie goal. With that milestone, he joined a select group.
Only four players preceded Linssen this century: Klaas Jan Huntelaar scored 154 goals on behalf of (Heerenveen and Ajax, Dirk Kuyt was accurate 153 times in the shirt of FC Utrecht and Feyenoord, Luuk de Jong shot and headed as a player of De Graafschap, FC Twente and PSV hit 135 times and FC Twente striker Blaise Nkufo was good for 114 Eredivisie goals.
Ten years ago – on October 22, 2011 – Linssen scored his first goal at the highest level in the Netherlands. He did that on behalf of VVV in the home game against RKC (4-1). He scored a total of 12 goals for the club from Venlo. He then scored 21 times for Heracles, 13 times for FC Groningen, 41 times for Vitesse and 13 times for Feyenoord.

His 100th was arguably his finest. ,,This was one in style,” said Linssen after the game about his heelball at ESPN. “You don’t think about this, it just happens. You see the ball coming and there is only one way to do it. It was a great moment for me personally and especially an important moment for the team.”
With 100 Eredivisie goals, Linssen is now in joint 59th place on the list of Eredivisie top scorers of all time. He shares that position with Frans Geurtsen (DWS), Rick Hoogendorp (RKC, ADO) and Cees Groot (Ajax). The list is headed by Willy van der Kuylen, who scored 311 times for PSV and MVV.
Huntelaar, the most prolific player of this century, is 12th.
