Only twelve players have been able to accomplish this feat so far.The 34-year-old versatile player made his European debut on 16 September 1992, when he was fielded as left winger in the UEFA Cup tie between Vitesse versus Derry City (3-0). After that he made another 98 appearances. He made his debut for PSV three years later, away against the Finnish side MyPa (1-1). Cocu was fielded in twelve PSV UEFA Champions League games; he made four appearances in the European Cup for cup winners (1997-1997) and he started eight UEFA Cup ties.
