Feyenoord go top in Dutch league

August 24, 2009 09:28 IST

Feyenoord scored three times in the first half as they romped to a 4-0 home win over Roda JC Kerkrade and went top of the Dutch league on Sunday.

Former Roda striker Sekou Cisse opened the scoring after four minutes while Jon Dahl Tomasson and Jonathan de Guzman were also on target before the interval.

De Guzman scored his second four minutes from time as Feyenoord went top with 10 points from four matches, ahead of Twente Enschede on goal difference.

Steve McClaren's Twente beat RKC Waalwijk 2-1 with first-half goals from Costa Rica striker Bryan Ruiz and Switzerland forward Blaise Nkufo.

Charlison Benschop pulled one back for the visitors on the hour.

Twente will travel to Feyenoord next week.

Defending champions AZ Alkmaar beat Heerenveen 2-0 to go third with nine points.

Heerenveen goalkeeper Martin Lejsal pushed the ball into his own goal after Mounir El Hamdaoui hit the post on the half hour while the Moroccan scored his fifth of the season after picking up a fine pass from Maarten Martens in the second half.
