PUSAN I'CONS TOO STRONG FOR FEYENOORD

It was perhaps a game too far for Feyenoord as the Rotterdammers went down by 4-1 goals to one to Pusan I'cons Friday. The ex-club of Chong-Gug Song won the game in front of 20,000 fans against a much-changed Feyenoord lineup. Robin van Persie grabbed the visitors’ goial near the end, but it was a Dutch treat. The game wraps up Feyenoord’s mini tour of Japan and South Korea that saw them play a match in each country.

Robin van Persie had a great chance on five minutes to hand his side the lead but missed and the Rotterdammers were made to pay two minutes later when the Serbian Urumov netted for the hosts. Feyenoord started to put together some fine passing moves in search of the leveller, but the I'cons played on the counter, which led to a second goal just after the halfhour mark. Urumov it was who grabbed his second. Five minutes later Mariano Bombarda should have pulled one back when he was sent clear with only the keeper to beat, but the Argentinian couldn’t convert. A recurrence of Glenn Loovens’s groin strain meant that the defender did not return for the second half. Chong-Gug Song was the most imposing player in a Feyenoord shirt. The Korean was obviously out to show his fans what he could do and his attacking actions were many. A shot from distance by Song shaved the bar in the 44th minute. In the second half a visibly jaded Feyenoord again claimed most of the ball, but chances for Song and Pardo went a-begging. Pusan punished the visitors with two strikes from incisive counters and only minutes from the end did Feyenoord finally get on the scoresheet, when Robin van Persie converted a freekick with panache. Scarcely a minute after that Jeppe Curth missed two dream opportunities to claim his first senior goal for Feyenoord when the young Dane miss-controlled, then shot high and wide. Pusan I'cons-Feyenoord 4-1 (2-0) 1-0 Uromov (7') 2-0 Uromov (29') 3-0 Hwangchul Min (66') 4-0 Lee-Jang Kwan (69') 4-1 Robin van Persie (85') FEYENOORD Zoetebier; Song, Loovens (De Groot, 45'), De Nooijer, Rzasa (Curth, 45'); Lurling, Paauwe Leonardo dos Santos, Pardo; Van Persie, Bombarda (Mulder, 70') Yellow: Paauwe (25')
