PSV have reached the KNVB Cup third round, following a 3-0 victory against Young PSV. Three players made their first-team debut when two teams of the same club faced each other in a very special Cup tie at the Philips Stadium on Tuesday night. 28, 000 mainly young fans attended the game and donated a large sum of money to KWF Fight against cancer.
Nearly 30, 000 euros donated to KWF
It took a while before all the fans had taken their seats, but they soon got the party going and created a terrific football atmosphere in the stadium. The admission to tonight's KNVB Cup tie was free, but PSV had asked the crowd to donate money to a charity. For many years, PSV has been partner of the KWF Fight against cancer and the club is delighted to be able to transfer an amount of nearly 30, 000 euros, raised by the fans, sponsors and first-team squad. The money will be used, among other things, for research into childhood cancer. Some 28, 000 thousand, mainly young, fans had come to the Philips Stadium to attend the game.
Stijn Wuytens scores opener
Jan Kromkamp and Carlos Salcido returned to the starting line-up, while PSV head coach Huub Stevens handed a debut to keeper Cássio Ramos and Funso Ojo in a competitive game. Young PSV fielded five junior players and none of the eleven players that started against AZ last Saturday were included in PSV's starting line-up tonight. Stijn Wuytens scored an early opener for the 'visitors' after only four minutes. .Nordin Amrabat started a fine solo run and the ball fell to the Belgian midfielder who placed a low shot from close range past keeper Jeroen Zoet. Minutes later Nijland set up Danko Lazovic with a clever through ball, but the Serbia striker sent his effort wide. Wuytens came close to doubling PSV's lead when his rifled a right-footed shot hit the post.
Lazovic goal, Manco debut
PSV took a bright start to the second period and soon extended their advantage. Two minutes into the second half, Culina turned provider for Lazovic and the striker scored PSV's second goal of the night with a clinical finish. Reimond Manco, who replaced Amrabat, was handed his PSV debut and Maza had been brought on during half time to take over from countryman Salcido. Addo captained the team in the second half. Young PSV worked hard but were unable to create any scoring opportunities. Jasper Waalkens came close to scoring a consolation in the closing stages, though, but sent his effort just wide, as the young fans started another Mexican wave. Lazovic headed home the third goal from a Nijland cross in the dying minute. PSV have reached the next round and the Young PSV players may feel proud for having put on a decent display. And KWF Fight against cancer may also be labeled winners tonight. PSV will next be in action on Saturday when they play host to FC Volendam at the Philips Stadium.
