Feyenoord heads to break with a victory over NAC Breda

After a troublesome three match losing streak, Feyenoord completed its historial century year with a 3-1 victory over NAC Breda buoyed by its youth. Gertjan Verbeek's side took the lead at de Kuip thirty-three minutes in as Diego Biseswar, finally fit from injury, beat his man and launched a powerful long range missile from well outside the box into the net. With the 1-0 lead, NAC looked far from confident and Feyenoord doubled the margin moments before the break as Leroy Fer nodded Giovanni van Bronckhorst's cross into the box. Resurgent in front of over forty-thousand supporters, Feyenoord continued to press to close the match off with the third goal and two minutes past the hour Kevin Wattamaleo provided Leroy Fer the ball and Fer added his second goal of the match with a confident strike from just outside the area. With the match out of reach Matthew Amoah added a consolation goal with four minutes remaining but nothing could stop the celebration of Feyenoord's 3-1 victory.

While a small token of success the match surely will give het Legion reason to celebrate and eternal hope for the future.
