Dream Debut! 17 year old Ajax youngster Jairo Riedewald scores brace in final minutes to win match

Ajax have just taken first place in the Eredivisie with a stunning last minute comeback v Roda JC Kerkrade.

All the headlines will be dominated by 17 year old debutant Jairo Riedewald as he came on in the final minutes and turned the match around, scoring two goals in the 88th and 92nd minute. Riedewald, a left back, replaced Christian Poulsen.

Ajax are now winter champions, nudging ahead of Vitesse Arnhem on goal difference.

Both goals were classic poacher goals, one coming from a goalmouth scramble and the other from a corner.

The player has stated his happiness at Ajax, saying: ” I know my abilities and know that I can play football. Whether it is in the first selection , the A1 or B1 , I always try to do my thing. That’s the most important thing , I think. It’s typical Ajax , giving young players a chance. This why it’s such a good club, the club invests in the youth.”
