PSV have won the Kjeld Rasmussen Cup IV at the Brøndby Stadium in Copenhagen on Saturday afternoon, after Fred Rutten's team beat Brøndby IF 1-2 in a pre-season friendly, courtesy of goals from Balzs Dzsudzsk and Danko Lazovic. Farnerud scored the equaliser for the home side.
Fine first-half performance
PSV started well and dominated the first fifteen minutes of the pre-season friendly in Copenhagen. Amrabat saw his shot pushed away for a corner. Maza headed on target from the resulting corner, taken by Dzsudzsk, and the Danish goalkeeper Andersen dived at full length to keep his side in the game. A few minutes later, Koevermans turned provider for Afellay, but the midfielder had his effort saved. The opening goal came after twenty minutes when Andersen fumbled a long-range Dzsudzsk shot through his legs and over the goal line. PSV kept up the pressure in the remaining minutes of the first period as the hosts only threatened with a number of counter attacks. PSV stopper Isaksson did well to deny a header from Bischoff. Fred Rutten's team upped a gear ten minutes from half time, with Afellay unleashing a powerful shot that went just wide and Koevermans failing to finish a one on one with the keeper. Half time score: 0-1.
Toivonen comeback
Rutten made two substitutions at half time, bringing on Edison Mndez and Jan Kromkamp for Simons and Maza, while Ibrahim Afellay was handed the captain's armband. Fourteen minutes into the second half, referee Anders Hermansen pointed to the spot when a Brøndby player went out of bounds after being lightly pushed by Marcellis. Farnerud stepped up to take the penalty and converted the spot kick, with Isaksson going the wrong way; 1-1. Rutten brought on three new players, Lazovic, Pieters and Bakkal, and the head coach's substitutions paid immediate dividends. Within a minute of making his way onto the field, Lazovic gave PSV the lead again. Kromkamp took a shot on goal and the ball somehow took a wicked deflection of the Serb striker; 1-2. Toivonen made his comeback in the 73rd minute. The Swedish striker had picked up a minor injury during the UEFA European Under-21Championship in his own country, but it appeared his injury was no longer an issue. Jonathan, Nijland and Wuytens came on in the closing stages when PSV were heading for a 1-2 win. The Kjeld Rasmussen Cup IV was presented to Timmy Simons. The PSV travelling party will fly back home tonight.
