The brothers were both in action at the Jan Louwers Stadion in the Dutch second-tier league. Edwin – the elder of the two started the game before Raymond joined the fray 13 minutes from normal time.

Edwin who played full throttle in the game had a hand in Mitchell Paulissen’s opening goal on the hour mark and Raymond’s introduction in the 77th added more bite to his side’s attack.

At 20, Raymond is well known in the Netherlands for his extraordinary abilities on the ball and picked several youth awards while at AZ Alkmaar.
