Feyenoord clinch Dutch Cup

April 28, 2008 11:06 IST

Feyenoord won the Dutch Cup on Sunday when first-half goals by Denny Landzaat and Jonathan de Guzman secured a 2-0 victory over Roda JC Kerkrade.

Landzaat netted a Luigi Bruins cross from close range after eight minutes before De Guzman doubled the lead in the 36th minute following a neat one-two with Michael Mols.

Feyenoord allowed Roda to dominate large parts of the match but despite some long distance efforts, the Rotterdam defence were never seriously tested.

With their 11th cup win and first since 1995, Feyenoord ended a six-year spell without a trophy, the last being the UEFA Cup triumph of 2002.

Feyenoord finished sixth in the league and now qualify for the UEFA Cup while Roda have to play off against Utrecht, Groningen and NEC Nijmegen for the remaining UEFA Cup spot.
