Young Orange has recovered from last Friday‘s 2-2 draw at Young Switzerland. At the Goffertstadion, the orange shirts, where Myron Boadu was surprisingly sitting on the couch, won simple from Young Wales: 5-0.
National coach Erwin van de Looi decided to keep Boadu out of the base eleven and allowed players like Daishawn Redan and Joshua Zirkzee to start. That worked out fine, because Young Orange was much better than the guests from Wales and came ahead after eight minutes. Mitchel Bakker swung in front of the ball and Jurgen Ekkelenkamp acrobatically poked into the 1-0.
Even before half time, the margin doubled and that was due to Sven Botman. The Lille OSC stopper, who had the captain‘s band around his arm, tapped a corner and that actually broke the Welsh resistance. After rest, the team couldn‘t break any more pots and Jong Oranje was given the opportunity to walk to 5-0.
The third goal was Fin Stevens’ own goal after a hard cross by Jeremie Frimpong, after which Redan already worked against the ropes in the 4-0 and Ekkelenkamp set the final score at 5-0 with his second hit of the match. The fact that the score was on the scoreboard in minute 53 was the only thing on an otherwise excellent evening.
