Huntelaar was named Dutch Football Talent of the Year and Ajax "Player of the Year" in 2006 and was a part of the Dutch side that won the 2006 UEFA U-21 Championship where he became the tournament's leading goalscorer. He was also named as one of two strikers in the UEFA Team of the Tournament.
He is the all-time top scorer of the Netherlands U-21 national team with 18 goals in 22 appearances.

Huntelaar scored two goals and provided two assists on his senior debut in the Netherlands 4–0 win, and thus became the first Dutch player to score on his full international debut for 28 years since Dick Nanninga in 1978.
