Must Watch of the Week
By Daniel Nogueira
Ajax v. PSV | Dutch Eredivisie | Johan Cruijff Schaal | 7/30/22
Exciting preseason games are about to give way to many ‘22-23 seasons around Europe. Before I flood you with English Premier League highlights, I need you to watch this exciting 8 goal game out of the Netherlands! Many European leagues hold a one-time showcase match to ignite fans and offer teams a chance to win some silverware before the actual season begins – often called a ‘Super Cup’. In the case of the Dutch Eredivisie, league favorites Ajax Amsterdam host PSV Eindhoven to contest for the Johan Cruyff Shield. Out of the many Super Cups occurring this past week across Europe, this one was the most fun to watch. Enjoy Ajax’s recent heavyweight signing, Steven Bergwijn #7 – a cunningly clinical finisher transferred from Tottenham, and lookout for PSV’s young talent from La Masia, Xavi Simons #7 whose nimble movement is a pleasure to watch. If this match doesn’t have you doing chef kisses at the screen, I’m not doing my job!!
