VAN MARWIJK MIDDLING PLEASED AFTER FIRST RUNOUT

A five-goal defeat of Excelsior Maassluis in the club’s primary preseason tryout Friday night solicited a cool reaction from coach Bert van Marwijk. ‘We didn’t score enough goals, though we had around twenty-five chances. The people around the strikers were given a free role and they fulfilled it reasonably well.’ The coach flagged up the performance of Swede Johan Elmander, who replaced Bombarda at the turnaround and grabbed a goal within three minutes of the restart.

The star of the night was Robin van Persie, who scored to beautiful goals. Anthony Lurling and Paul Bosvelt got the other Rotterdam strikes. Dirk Kuyt made his debut, but couldn’t find the net. EXCELSIOR MAASSLUIS-FEYENOORD 0-5 (0-2) 0-1 Lurling (33') 0-2 Van Persie (37') 0-3 Elmander (46') 0-4 Van Persie (68') 0-5 Bosvelt (77') FEYENOORD Zoetebier (Lodewijks, 45'); Song, Loovens, De Nooijer, Van Driel; Lurling (Leonardo, 57'), Bosvelt, Paauwe, Van Persie; Kuyt and Bombarda (Elmander, 45')
