NETHERLANDS: TEARS IN VIENNA- HDM NARROWLY MISSES OUT ON EUROPEAN CUP WIN

netherlands tranen in wenen hdm grijpt net naast europacup winst 65d218119d09c - NETHERLANDS: TEARS IN VIENNA- HDM NARROWLY MISSES OUT ON EUROPEAN CUP WIN - These were the last fragments of HDM in the wonderful Viennese weekend. Because they were so close. Close to something unique. Something that no Dutch club had yet achieved. Never has a men's team come so close to the European Indoor Cup top prize. A missed shoot-out by Yorben Fontaine ultimately proved fatal for HDM. He was the only one of the six players (three on both sides) who did not score. It was the end of a match that had gone crazy.

HDM just missed out on the main prize in a blood-curdling European Cup Indoor final. In Vienna, the Hague team lost to top favorite Harvestehuder after shoot-outs. In an idiotic final battle it was 6-6 after forty minutes. Goalgetter Mustapha Cassiem hid his head in his shirt. Fighting back the tears that were probably coming anyway. A little further […]
