Frank Sturing

Recommended Posts

He's a '97 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Sturing

 

Made the 50-man U23 Olympic Qualifying Provisional Roster

All his matches for Netherlands youth teams seem to be friendlies:
http://www.transfermarkt.us/frank-sturing/nationalmannschaft/spieler/302611/verein_id/16342
He is therefore not cap-tied to us and did not file his one-time-switch

 

Plays for NEC Nijmegen in the Netherlands 2nd division, known as the Eerste Divisie  http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_Eerste_Divisie

Wasn't included in their gameday squad for their last two games:

Feb 21st: http://keukenkampioendivisie.nl/wedstrijden/2019-2020-go-ahead-eagles-vs-n-e-c
Feb 14th: http://keukenkampioendivisie.nl/wedstrijden/2019-2020-n-e-c-vs-helmond-sport/

but was listed as a sub 3 matches ago
Feb 7th: http://keukenkampioendivisie.nl/wedstrijden/2019-2020-telstar-vs-n-e-c/

 

Although 2 years older than Ferdi Kadıoğlu, his time in both the youth setup and the senior team at NEC Nijmegen overlaps. 

Does anybody know if he is the cousin/half-brother/relative of Kadıoğlu? Two Dutch-Canadians in the youth setup at the same club in the Netherlands, both born in the Netherlands in towns only 25km apart from each other - there must be some connection right?!?

There's no connection as far as I know as 1 is Turkish and 1 is Dutch. My only guess about Frank is a Canadian mother. I tried to find something about him but it only says he comes from a football family and that both his older brothers used to play. Nothing anywhere about his Canadian ties.

Ferdi's mother is Dutch Canadian.

An article from yesterday with some interesting tidbits:

https://www.forzanec.nl/nieuws/nieuws/article/sturing-gaat-vol-voor-interlandcarriere-met-canada.html

  • Sturing initiated contact with the CSA, they have been watching his matches from the beginning of the season
  • His father was born in Canada but moved to the Netherlands at a young age
  • He still hasn't received his Canadian passport. He'll need to get it before March 14 to be eligible to play.

I would have bet money that this was Frank Sturing's father, who was apparently born in Canada:  https://www.transfermarkt.us/edward-sturing/profil/trainer/597

But this article says they aren't related. https://www.omroepgelderland.nl/nieuws/2304790/NEC-verdediger-Sturing-verlengt-contract

Weird, they even have the same agent and have similar features.

Sturing if he is a dual national, then as far as a nationality switch, it is doable. I mean he has made Canada's provisional roster for the men when it comes to trying to qualify for the Olympics in Tokyo next summer at least from what I've read.
