Edgard Davids · Netherlands
UEFA EURO 2004™ player's profile

At his best, the Surinam-born Dutch international Edgar Davids is almost the complete midfield player, combining technique and tenacity with a surprisingly subtle touch.

National team
Davids first appeared for the Netherlands in a 1-0 defeat against the Republic of Ireland in April 1994. He was sent home from EURO '96™ for publicly criticising coach Guus Hiddink, but was back to his best at the 1998 FIFA World Cup - where he made the team of the tournament - and at UEFA EURO 2000™.

UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifying
Davids scored the Netherlands' first qualifying goal in their opening 3-0 victory against Belarus and subsequently bossed the midfield in five of the remaining seven Group 3 fixtures and both legs of the play-off defeat of Scotland.

Club
His first season as a professional with AFC Ajax ended with the Dutch maestros winning the 1991/92 UEFA Cup. Ajax claimed the Dutch Cup the following term, a success preceding three successive championships and a UEFA Champions League victory in 1994/95, beating AC Milan 1-0 - the club he was to join on a free transfer in 1996.

1996: Davids initially failed to settle in Italy after joining Milan, breaking his leg almost immediately, and managing just 19 Serie A showings before a €5.3m transfer to Juventus in December 1997 revived him.

1997: Davids was comfortable in Turin and he ended the 1997/98 season an Italian champion. He continued to be a mainstay of the team until he was banned at the end of the 2000/01 season after testing positive for the steroid nandrolone. Nicknamed the 'Pitbull', Juventus coach Marcello Lippi once described him as "my one-man engine room". Davids won a third Scudetto as Juve defended their Italian crown in 2002/03. He was often inspirational in Europe, too, playing 15 times as the club made it all the way to the Champions League final before losing to AC Milan on penalties.

2003/04: Enjoyed a terrific campaign after joining FC Barcelona on loan in January. He went on to play 18 times for Barça as they surged up the Primera División table to finish second.

Davids wears protective glasses during matches after having operations on both eyes due to acute glaucoma.
