Yesterday, the Dutch national amputee football team defeated Germany 0 – 3 in a home match for the Germans played at Üxheim- Niederehe.    The win came after the Netherlands led 0 – 1 at the half.


The Netherlands came into this match with a slight disadvantage as some players were out as a result of injury.  Some of the newer faces on the squad had not had much experience internationally, and in rotation with the team’s regular starters.   Wesley van Ingen, Dennis Peirera and Robin ter Veld all scored for the Dutch side in the game, with van Ingen starting off the scoring after a beautiful pass from ter Veld.  Germany’s best scoring opportunity came late in the game off a penalty kick.  The Dutch goalkeeper used his crutch to make an amazing stop and keep the German side off the board.

A second match takes place later today in Üxheim- Niederehe.  The Dutch side were in regular training for several weeks for this friendly series.
