A visit to Willem II is becoming an annual occurrence for TIC and I must say we need to keep doing it, as they always win!!
It was a great turnout of 14 people and probably 50% of our group had never seen Willem II play live. After finding our places and singing the Williem II song, I would like to say, at this point, it was already really, really cold! The game began!!
There was a minute silence to commemorate an old player of Willem II & Roda who had passed away a few days earlier. It really showed how people can come together and have respect for the game.
And then, after only 14 minutes, Willem II made the first and only goal of the game. I am afraid to say the quality of football was not the best, but for a price tag of 8 euro a ticket, you can’t beat it. Roda never gave up and did fight for the ball resulting in two yellow cards being given; one for Willem II and one for Roda.
It’s always a great day out, but just don’t think you are going to see Barcelona, but of course you can always be pleasantly surprised.
