Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to or worn by Snelders for the U-21 team in 1985-86. This classic diagonal striped design goalkeeper shirt is most famous for being worn by Adidas teams at Euro '84. It was kept on at U-21 level until the end of '86. Snelders made his FC Twente debut in 1980 and had kept goal for the Oranje U-18's in the past. The keeper graduated to the U-21 team in '84 and represented them 8 times in total mostly in the 1986 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification campaign. In 1988 Snelders was called-up to play two Olympic qualification games and his one and only full international appearance came a year later against the Soviet Union, though he did also go to the 1994 World Cup too later in his career
