Netherlands: Twente claim successive Super Cup win over Ajax (+video)
For the second successive year FC Twente have won the Dutch Super Cup fixture against Ajax Amsterdam. The Enschede based side won this title in 2010 as defending league champions but were going into this season’s competition as cup holders having been pipped to the 2010-11 Eredivisie title by Ajax in a dramatic last day showdown. Saturday night saw FC Twente gain an element of revenge as they won the season curtain-raiser by two goals to one thanks to goals from Marc Janko and Bryan Ruiz with Ajax’s Toby Alderweireld scoring inbetween. With the 2011-12 Eredivisie season starting next week both teams are on the road for the opening match of the new campaign with champions Ajax away at De Graafschap and FC Twente locking horns against NAC Breda.
