Peter Van Der Heyden joined Club Brugge in the 2000 close season and has twice finished as runners-up in his two seasons at the Jay Breydel Stadium.

The attacking left-back's consistency was rewarded in April 2001 when he was selected for the vital World Cup qualifier against the Czech Republic in Prague.

Peter previously played for Sporting Lokeren, St Niklaas and Eendracht Aalst, but has more recently been reported to have attracted the interest of Internazionale and given the opportunity could be one of the unexpected stars of World Cup 2002.

Peter recorded his first international goal in Belgium's first game in the Far East with the late equaliser that secured a point in the 2-2 draw with co-hosts Japan.
