    The magic of the (Dutch) Cup

    Wednesday evening, FC den Bosch of the equivalent to the SBC were at home to VVSB, a bunch of part timers from the equivalent of the Vanarama.

    After 81 minutes, den Bosch were 2-0 up and cruising to a place in the semi finals. But hen the magic of the cup took control.

    82 minutes 2-1

    85 minutes 2-2

    87 minutes 2-3 and VVSB had made the semi final. Next morning, the 20 year old who scored the winner was at work at 0800 in Hema, a department store where he is an intern doing work experience as part of his college course. The store was besieged by camera vrews all day and they have never had so much blanket coverage free advertising.

    In the draw they managed to miss Feijenoord and AZ and drew Utrecht away, the easiest of the 3 possibilities but still a huge task to ask them to reach the final.

    I wish them luck.
