Vince Gino Dekker is a son of former NEC Nijmegen and AZ Alkmaar striker – Bennie Dekker. He joined famous Ajax youth academy from a small team DVS ’33 Ermelo at the age of 7. He is a member of a very strong generation of Ajax players born in 1997 which includes among others Vaclav Cerny, Donny van de Beek, Abdelhak Nouri, Adham El Idrissi and Ezra Walian. He is known as one of the best and most accurate crossers in European youth football. He made his international debut for the Netherlands at youth level playing for the Netherlands U-15 squad in 2012. Currently, he is a member of U18 young “Oranje” setup.
“With the bold, chest-out running style of Robert Pires, his ability to cross from absolutely any position could easily have led to many more Ajax goals than it did. With great vision, a selfless approach, and a decent right foot to go with a phenomenal left, he more than makes up for an occasional lack of pace. Add a constant desire to receive the ball and that stand-up cross from the byline which few professionals can master more than 50 per cent of the time, and the Godenzonen have a real talent on their hands.”
