Alkmaar – Calvin Stings was a killer unconsciously over the Twente match on Saturday night. “They let us play football very easily,” said the great Arizona striker. At Alkmaar the score was 4-1 for the home team. “We had a lot of space.”
FC Twente couldn’t keep up with Arizona in the first half on Saturday at all. The team was beaten and missed three goals in 35 minutes. Stengs played a leading role with the home team. He was constantly coming from the winger, which allowed the AZ to have a majority in many places on the field. Twente had no answer to that.
“We were naive and we were not 100 percent and we gave up after the first goal in the fifth minute,” coach Ron Jans was disappointed. “You play a match and this word has two parts: the match and the battle. Well, we never really succeeded in taking that fight. We want to put a lot of pressure on, but if you do then you have to apply a lot of pressure and be strong in duels. But AZ can play from And then you see that half of the team wants to apply more pressure and the other half is lagging behind. ”
Jans brought Wout Brama to Godfried Roemeratoe on break. FC Twente performed better in the standings in the second half. “They collapsed a little more, so there was less space for us,” said Stings. “We were better organized in the second half,” said Jans.
