Eloy Room thinks Vitesse can win the cup. The goalkeeper of Columbus Crew, who won the pine cone himself in the service of the Arnhemmers in 2017, says it‘s all about faith in their own ability.
The cup that Room and his own won was the first prize Vitesse ever won. A repetition of that success is, according to the goalkeeper, one of the possibilities. “If things are a bit along, we can certainly do it”, says Room to ESPN. “When I played the cup tournament, there was a lot of faith in our group. If you have that, you’ll get very far. With confidence in your team and in yourself, it should work.”
The party that erupted in Arnhem after the cup win, Room will remember forever. “The whole city was upside down and we got a ceremony in the center of Arnhem. That was very nice. You saw people crying, and of course that was very emotional, because Vitesse didn‘t win many awards. The fact that we were the first is something you’ll realize later. One of the highlights of my career.”
To win the cup the Arnhemmers have to pay for VVV-Venlo on Tuesday evening, after which Ajas or SC Heerenveen will be the opponent in the final in De Kuip.
