With two goals in the final phase, Guus Til was the star of Feyenoord against NEC on Saturday.
The midfielder could not be very happy about it, because he felt that Feyenoord had unnecessarily got itself into trouble.
"I'm a little annoyed before," Til said shortly after the 5-3 game against
"With all due respect, but if you are playing at home against NEC and you are leading 2-0, you can no longer fall behind 3-2."
Feyenoord gave up an early lead in De Kuip and even fell behind fifteen minutes before the end.
In the final phase, it was still good for the home club via two goals from Til, who had already scored twice against sc Heerenveen (3-1), and a goal from substitute Cyriel Dessers.
"I had already given up, so to speak, after those 2-3", Til said.
"I don't know where we got it from after that, unbelievable. But actually I don't think this is possible. We were quickly ahead 2-0. Then it should not happen that you fall behind."
"How can that be? Yes, shoot me, I don't know. Maybe laziness? They scored from a free kick and a throw-in. In the build-up we don't give away much this season, but set pieces are not such a success yet ."
Til has already scored five times in the Eredivisie.
In the preliminary rounds of the Conference League, the midfielder scored six goals.
For Feyenoord it was the third league win in a row, as a result of which the club has moved up to third place.
