Caltex Socceroos goalkeeper Brad Jones has helped Feyenoord to their second Dutch Cup win in three seasons following a 3-0 win over AZ Alkmaar on Monday.
Trailing AZ by eight points in the Eredivisie, goals from Nicolai Jorgenson, Robin Van Persie and Jens Toornstra secured the win for Feyenoord.
Jones started in goal for Feyenoord and managed to keep a clean sheet against an AZ Alkmaar side currently third in the Eredivisie.
The goalkeeper has played a huge role in the side’s cup run starting in all but one of Feyenoord’s Dutch Cup matches this season.
He was front and centre in this match, too. A strong save in the 17th minute from a wicked Alireza Jahanbakhsh shot stopped AZ from going ahead earlier.
A similar save from a Wout Weghorst shot late in the first half helped Feyenoord go to the break ahead.
The cup win is the 13th time that Feyenoord has won the competition.
