Jordy Clasie Rescues Feyenoord In Injury Time

Jordy Clasie

Jordy Clasie scored three minutes into injury time to rescue a point for Feyenoord after a compelling clash with AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch Eridivisie at De Kuip. The Dutchmen levelled after AZ Alkmaar had taken a 2-0 lead. Colin Kazim-Richards pulled one back for Fred Rutten’s side before Clasie fired home to extend Feyenoord’s unbeaten run to nine games in all competitions.

The hosts dominated the early stages having 80% of the ball in the first 20 minutes before AZ took the lead on the counter to stun De Kuip into silence. A corner swung in from the right wasn’t dealt with by the Feyenoord defence and the ball fell on the head of Wesley Hoedt who calmly headed past a helpless Ken Vermeer.

Five minutes later the visitors found themselves two up following Tankovic’s finish at the far post from a Hoedt header. Tankovic who was clearly offside seemed as stunned as the home fans that the goal was allowed to stand. From then on it was one-way traffic with Feyenoord controlling possession and the speed of the game. On the stroke of half time, Feyenoord striker Jens Toornstra found himself free in the box although he was only able to fire the ball of the top of the post to finish the action for the first half and leave the home fans wondering if it was going to be one of those days?

However, they didn’t have to wait long into the second half to be given hope of snatching something by their team. Lex Immers fed the ball wide to Colin Kazim-Richards who found himself in-line with the corner of the 18 yard box. He managed to fire home from what looked like an impossible angle and beat Alvarado in the Alkmaar net.

For the next half an hour the game followed the same pattern. Feyenoord had nearly all of the ball but they struggled to break down a stubborn Alkmaar rear-guard and it was AZ who were creating the best chances when striking on the counter attack, Tankovic being denied twice by fine stops from Kenneth Vermeer.

Just when Alkmaar thought they had the win that would have lifted them to third in their sights, Jordy Clasie struck the ball from just outside the box. It managed to find its way under Alvarado who didn’t see the ball till late after it went through a number of bodies. Tankovic then hit a free kick just wide from outside the box in injury time but neither side could fashion a winner and the match ended a draw.

The result keeps Feyenoord 4th and AZ Alkmaar 5th. Feyenoord travel to the league leaders PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday night looking to pick up a big result before the Winter break whilst Alkmaar host FC Utrecht on Saturday.
