The UEFA Youth League last sixteen tie between Feyenoord Under 19s and Chelsea Under 19s will be played on Wednesday 21 Feb...
Feyenoord did not pick up any injuries on the trip to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. That means that head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst will be able to choose from the same players against ADO Den Haag in The Hague on Sunday as he had at his disposal on Wednesday in Ukraine.
With the return in Kharkov of Renato Tapia, only Eric Botteghin, Jan-Arie van der Heijden and Sven van Beek are now ruled out by injury. ‘Things are going better for Sven, but not well enough for him to be involved on Sunday,’ said Van Bronckhorst during the Friday press conference.
On Wednesday Van Bronckhorst saw Nicolai Jørgensen score his first goal since he himself returned from a month-long injury layoff. ‘You see that Nicolai is getting stronger and stronger and is important to the team,’ said the head coach. ‘He allowed the team to play more freely against Roda and Shakhtar. He is coming back into the form he had last season.’
