Times change quickly. 15 years ago it was certainly not a problem when someone wanted to go straight into goal. After all, many teams were already happy when they found a goalkeeper. Times are slowly changing and a goalkeeper has to be almost the equal of the other fielders. With the added bonus that he or she should also be able to avoid goals. For Joren Op de beeck, his football career started at Putte sk, not as a goalkeeper, but as a fielder. When the goalkeeper of his team wasn’t there once, he was allowed to fill in for him and the goalkeeper microbe soon got hold of him.
