De Graafschap goalkeeper Rob van Dijk told reporters after the game in which his side slipped to a defeat that he ’didn’t pay attention to the ball’. PSV capitalized on his blooper on twenty minutes and unexpectedly took an easy lead.Van Dijk seemed to have caught a shot that was slightly deviated. PSV striker Gerald Sibon was in an off-side position at that moment, but referee Jan Wegereef waved play on. Van Dijk then inexplicably dropped the ball. Phillip Cocu passed it to Alex, who tapped the easiest of goals into the net."It all happened after a free kick had been taken. I got up and I just dropped the ball. I was going to kick the ball and looked if I saw an unmarked team mate and I didn’t pay attention to the ball", explained the unfortunate keeper. Van Dijk also said that his team collapsed after PSV had doubled the advantage. Van Dijk: "We didn’t get any chances, so when they scored 0-2 it was game, set and match."
