Performance of the Weekend: Bas Dost scores five as Heerenveen crush Excelsior

“Unbelievable! The last time this happened to me I think I was fourteen or fifteen.” – Bas Dost.


Expect to see Bas Dost’s name circulated as a possible winter transfer target in the coming days/weeks.

The 22-year-old Heerenveen striker shot to the top of the Eredivisie goalscorers charts after an amazing five goal haul away at Excelsior on Saturday. In total Bas Dost has 14 goals (and three assists) in 16 games.

At Excelsior, the in-form 6ft 5in frontman scored three times with his head and twice with his right boot in the whitewash. Apart from Bas Dost’s virtuoso performance, standout shifts were also seen by wingers Oussama Assaidi and Luciano Narsingh who both chipped in with a handful of assists.
