No senior team appearances yet.
Despite being only 17-years-old, Carel Eiting is already a member of Ajax Amsterdam U19 – current Eredivisie U19 champion and a team with plenty of extremely talented players, such as Donny van de Beek, Abdelhak Nouri, Vaclav Cerny, Adham El Idrissi, Zakaria El Azzouzi and Gino Dekker. Carel was one of the key figures of Netherlands U17 team at the 2015 European Under-17 Championship, but “Jong Oranje” performance was a big disappointment, they went home after the group stages and failed to qualify for the U17 World Cup, which takes place in October.
“The 17-year-old was one of the star players during the qualifying campaign, and has been superb for Ajax’s U17 and U19 sides this season. Eiting made a good impression alongside the likes of Abdelhak Nouri and Donny van de Beek in the UEFA Youth league this season, and was rewarded with his first professional contract last week. Superb on the ball, with a great passing range, and an eye for goal, Eiting will be one of the main players to watch during the tournament in Bulgaria.”
