Justin Kluivert must be tired of always being compared to his dad.
I’ve got bad news, until he’s scored 40 goals for Holland and wins the Champions League those comparisons will continue.
There’s not much you can do I’m afraid Justin.
Well except for outdoing your father as soon as possible.
Justin made a good start on this when he debuted for the Ajax first team aged just 17 years old, nearly a year younger than when Patrick made his full debut.
However, after just four months playing for Ajax Patrick was selected for the Holland national team and made his senior debut against the Czech Republic when he was 18 years and four months old.
If Justin gets onto the pitch against either England or Portugal during this international break he will be playing entering the international stage six months after his father.
But he can still go one better when it comes to firsts than his famous dad for the Holland national team.
Ronald Koeman is leading a bit of a revolution over in Holland and drafted in seven new names for these two games.
After failing to qualify for two successive tournaments he had to go back to the drawing board and rip it all up.
Kluivert could be the first beneficiary of that.
Kluivert junior could be thrown into the game against England at the Amsterdam Arena to make his international debut.
And while his dad played for the Oranje when he was younger Justin could go one up in the record books against England.
Patrick had to wait until his second game to score his first goal for Holland – but what are the odds of Justin scoring on his debut?
He will have a long way to go to reach the 40 goals in 79 games of his father but when you start at age 18, at the beginning of a possible football revival in Holland it’s all possible.
