A solid tackler who likes to get forward, Belgium's right back began his career with Wandre Union. After four years at Standard Liege, Eric had a brief spell at Ekeren before he moved on to Club Brugge. In his first season there, he won his first international cap in a 3-0 World Cup qualifying defeat by Holland. He became a regular Red Devil during Euro 2000 when Belgium were one of the co-hosts. He was linked with Liverpool but accepted a £2.4million move to Olympique Lyonnais where he has been part of the team that has challenged for the French Championnat in the last two seasons, and gained Champions League experience.
