Siem De Jong: Scored in extra-time as Ajax beat AZ Alkmaar

The KNVB Beker holders looked to be on course for victory when Johann Berg Gudmundsson gave them a 52nd minute lead which was doubled by Aron Johansson in the 68th minute.

But an own goal from Jeffrey Gouweleeuw a minute later gave Ajax a route back into the match and the Eredivisie champions made the most of it by adding an equaliser from Kolbeinn Sigthorsson six minutes later.

Ajax then completed their comeback 13 minutes into extra time thanks to De Jong's header to secure the Super Cup for the eighth time in their history.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
