The decision process as to who wore the Dutch goalkeeping jersey during the 1970s was a complex one that had to take into account both style of play and personal politics. The two outstanding candidates were Jan Van Beveren of PSV and Jan Jongbloed of Ajax, the former a traditional style of keeper and the latter part of a new wave of guardians capable of playing comfortably with the ball at their feet as well as in their hands. Van Beveren won 32 caps between 1967 and 1977 but never played in a major tournament. Jongbloed won less caps, but played all the important games at the 1974 and 1978 World Cups. Piet Schrijvers was his deputy and eventual successor while Eddy Treijtel, Jan Ruiter and Pim Doesburg made a handful of appearances over the course of this decade too.
