Geert De Vlieger (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɣeːr də ˈvliɣər];[1] born 16 October 1971 in Dendermonde) is a retired Belgian football goalkeeper.

He started his career in his home country playing for Anderlecht and Beveren before moving to the Netherlands and playing for Willem II for four years between 2000 and 2004. He played in his first international for Belgium in 1999 (first selection in 1998) and has won 43 caps (55 selections) for his country.[2] He was the second choice goalkeeper in Euro 2000 (the first choice was Filip De Wilde) but then became the number 1 in World Cup 2002 replacing the latter after De Wilde's bad performances during the European Championship.

He signed for Manchester City in June 2004, but due to an Achilles tendon injury he sustained, he missed the whole of season 2004/05 and didn't play a single game in two seasons in England. In June 2006 he signed for Zulte-Waregem to make a come-back in the Jupiler League.
