AZ new leaders in Dutch league

Nov 2 2013, 10:58pm CDT | by IANS

The Hague, Nov 3 (IANS) AZ Alkmaar grabbed the lead in the Dutch Eredivisie Saturday by beating ADO Den Haag 2-0, while former leaders FC Twente drew 2-2 against NEC Nijmegen.

The Hague, Nov 3 — AZ Alkmaar grabbed the lead in the Dutch Eredivisie Saturday by beating ADO Den Haag 2-0, while former leaders FC Twente drew 2-2 against NEC Nijmegen.

Nemanja Gudelj opened the scoring for AZ just before halftime and in the second half Johann Berg Gudmundsson made it 2-0. The Icelandic forward found the net with a 30-meter strike. AZ booked their third victory in a row under new coach Dick Advocaat, reported Xinhua.

Also Saturday Ajax had another disappointing match. After two draws in a row coach Frank de Boer's side seemed to draw again at home against Vitesse. However, Valeri Qazaishvili produced a stunning winning goal for Vitesse in the 90th minute to wrap up the 1-0 victory.

FC Twente had a very good first half against NEC and went ahead 2-0 after goals from Shadrach Eghan and Quincy Promes. After halftime the spectators in Enschede saw a totally different match. Soren Rieks and Jakob Jantscher scored for NEC to make it 2-2.

With Karim Rekik back from an ankle injury PSV hoped to stop a streak of two defeats and they did. The result against PEC Zwolle was nevertheless disappointing 1-1. Jeffrey Bruma headed in the early PSV goal, but Fred Benson equalized for PEC. The latter received his second yellow booking five minutes from time.

AZ became already the sixth leaders in this Eredivisie season after Ajax, FC Groningen, PSV, PEC Zwolle and FC Twente. The Alkmaar based side now have 22 points from 12 matches, one point ahead of Vitesse, two ahead of FC Twente and three ahead of PSV, Ajax and PEC Zwolle.

Chelsea Star Nemanja Matic Finally Winning Accolades in His Native Serbia

Oct 12 2014 7:11am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

They say that no man is a prophet in his own land and Nemanja Matic had to learn that the hard way. Only now, after being widely recognized as one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League, is he starting to establish himself as a key player for the Serbia national team. The hype surrounding Matic has been particularly intense in the past couple of weeks, with his great performances against Sporting Lisbon and Arsenal, both of which Chelsea won (1-0 and 2-0, ...

Oct 3 2014 12:48am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Having quit on Serbia, Borussia Dortmund centre-back Neven Subotic is once again in the news for his emotional baggage, but this portrayal is unfair if you delve beyond the surface. Serbian national team manager Dick Advocaat called out Subotic's lack of patriotism. "My exchange of mails and text messages with Subotic has left no doubt that he doesn't like playing for the national team," Advocaat said, per Zoran Milosavljevic at Reuters. " ...
