“After such a game against NEC, you have to be fresh two days later against a top team like AZ to have a chance. And I thought we did,” said Van Wonderen afterwards. “We are off to a good start, have energy and are ahead 1-0.”
“In a game in which you are questioned, because you play against a good team like AZ. In the end we concede the goals at the wrong moments. Shortly after the 1-0 we get against him from a standard situation.”
“At the 3-1 I call out against Philippe (Rommens, ed.) from the side, because we had an injured person,” continues Van Wonderen. “He also wanted to do that, but that ball shoots in front of him and that’s why they tap in the 3-1. A 3-1 against this AZ, which is so stable. You can’t bend that straight anymore.”
Beukema passes judgment GA Eagles
It is precisely Sam Beukema, who was back in ‘his’ Deventer for a while, passed the verdict against Go Ahead Eagles. The defender had a large share in AZ’s victory with two goals. “Very special. Very special afternoon, which I will never forget. A mixed feeling, but in the end I am glad that it turned out that way for me personally.”
Don’t cheer exuberantly
“Those two goals make it even more special. You thought about it in advance that it could happen. And that it even happens twice, that’s really bizarre. With the first I thought I wasn’t going to cheer exuberantly. I feel the impotence of the supporters, which is why modest cheering,” said Beukema.
