Snethlage was a well-known Dutch player in his time, forming the right wing of both his club side and the national team with [Caius Welcker]. The two were nicknamed )scientific) by the media, likely referring to them being students. His career, in which he scored 10 goals in 11 international matches, was cut short by an injury in 1909. At the 1908 Olympics, he spent the night before the bronze medal match in the London nightlife, emerging only at the field with minutes to go. Team manager Edgar Chadwick (GBR) was furious, but put Snethlage on the team, who played great and scored the second and decisive goal. After completing his studies, he became a doctor in the Dutch East Indies.
