Daphne, once a volleyball enthusiast with dreams of joining the police force, quickly discovered her true calling in the world of football. With impressive reflexes, she now stands guard at goal, both for her club and her country.
The 23-year-old started her professional career in the east side of the Netherlands and quickly became the undisputed number one. Her breakthrough moment came during the UEFA Women's EURO 2022 in England, where her outstanding performances captured the attention of the global audience. After another season in Enschede, she said farewell to the Dutch league with an impressive collection of 8 titles, embarking on the next chapter of her career in the English league.
Following the Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, Daphne has since settled in Birmingham, where she gets to play every week in front of many fans. Daphne was included in The Guardian's list of the top 100 female footballers in the world, and nominated for the Ballon d'Or.
