RKC-FOR | 90+9′ End of match

Finished in Waalijk. RKC wins 3-1 over Fortuna and moves up to eighth place. Fortuna remains tenth.

RKC-FOR | RKC strong after falling behind

RKC Waalwijk already won 4 times this season after falling behind. Only Feyenoord did the same.


The match is decided, RKC makes it 3-1. Again it is Seuntjens who forces Pandur into a save and again it is an RKC player who scores from the rebound. Jozefzoon shoots in.


Another goal for RKC. Seuntjens takes the goal under fire after which Pandur can only just save. It doesn’t help Fortuna much as Lobete shoots in from the rebound to make it 2-1.


It’s tied in Waalwijk, even if the VAR has to take a close look at everything. First, RKC goalkeeper Vaessen collides with Bistrovic, but it does not earn Fortuna a free kick. In the ensuing attack, Jozefzoon passes the ball to Kramer, who is just offside and makes it 1-1.

RKC-FOR | 75′ Final quarter of an hour dawns

RKC-FOR | 62′ Vaessen keeps RKC in the match

After a good counter by Fortuna, Duarte shoots the ball hard towards the RKC goal. Keeper Vaessen can only just prevent the 0-2 with a clever reflex.


Fortuna has to do without coach Julio Velázquez for the rest of the match. The Spanish coach gets into a fight with referee Bas Nijhuis and receives two yellow cards within a minute.


Just after halftime, Burak Yilmaz makes his ninth of the season. The striker bypassed Pelle Clement and then shot the ball cleverly from distance.

RKC-FOR | 45′ Biggest chance so far for RKC

Lutonda caps his opponent and passes to Bel Hassani. With the outside of his foot he shoots at goal, but Pandur saves cleverly. Then Lelieveld shoots the rebound into the side-netting. There RKC was very close to the 1-0. Not much later it is halftime.

RKC-FOR | 40′ Chance Fortuna

RKC-FOR | 24′ Kramer again

This time the long striker shoots just wide of the post. Just before that, Bistrovic had the 0-1 for Fortuna on his shoe after a smooth attack, but he shot over. A game that could go either way for now.

The first pinprick is from the home team. Kramer with the shot, but his effort cannot surprise Pandur enough.

Sherida Spitse shouts it out

Painful loss for women Orange against Austria in deserted Maltese stadium

The Dutch women have lost the practice match against Austria (2-1) during the training camp in Malta. During the training camp, the Orange is preparing for the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Because the stadium on Malta was suffering from the aftermath of storm damage, the players of national coach Andries Jonker had to move to the mini-island of Gozo. The ambiance in the small stadium of Xewkija was best described as desolate. There was no one in the stands.

And we move straight on to the first match in playing round 22 of the premier league. In Waalwijk, the carnival cracker between RKC and Fortuna has now begun.


NED-OOS | 90+4′ Finished

After a very bad last half hour, Orange loses 2-1 to Austria. On Tuesday, the Netherlands plays again against Austria.


It becomes even 2-1 for the Austrian women. Sarah Zadrazil shoots the ball into the far cross.


For the first time in history, the Austrian women scored a goal against the Netherlands. Just before time, Eileen Campbell picks up a passed ball and simply slides it past Van Domselaar.

NED-OOS | 64′ Spitse immediately dangerous!

A nice entrance for Spitse. First she shoots a free kick into the wall, but in the rebound she fires a volley towards goal. Keeper Zinsberger can only just tap the ball over the crossbar.

NED-OOS | 61′ Orange substitutes, including Spitse within the lines

NED-OOS | 46′ Second half

The ball is rolling again at the Gozo Stadium.

End of first half in Malta. Orange leads through a fine goal by Lieke Martens.

NED-OOS | 33′ Kalma close!

There, Fenna Kalma should have scored her third goal in Orange. The striker gets a cross perfectly on her head, but she heads straight into the hands of the Austrian goalkeeper.


After a period of considerable pressure on the Austrian goal, the first goal of the evening is a reality. Lieke Martens shoots the ball neatly into the far corner.

NED-OOS | 7′ Great chance Austria

The first big chance is for Austria, but the cross from the left side just cannot be run in. Goalkeeper Daphne van Domselaar breathes a sigh of relief.

Netherlands – Austria 0-0
