Goal Elusive for Feyenoord against Partick Thistle

In a surprise result at The Energy Check Stadium at Firhill, Glasgow, Feyenoord Rotterdam were defeated 2-0 by Partick Thistle FC in their friendly encounter.

Midfielder Luke Sweeney gave Thistle the lead with a penalty in the 58th minute. Forward Graham Mitchell rounded off the Jags victory on 82 minutes with a close-range volley.

Feyenoord have dropped their first two matches against lesser opponents in the pre-season.

“Seventeen shots, four on goal. All is well!,” a grinning Manager Tomas van Dam said to reporters. No one understood at the time that it was a reference to a collegiate prankster movie comedy called “Animal House.”

Feyenoord continue their trip to Scotland with a match against Hearts in two days.
