First goal in FC Emmen shirt for Ole Romeny: ‘It was about time’

FOOTBALL – It was the dream scenario for FC Emmen at half time. Take the lead quickly, snap Young PSV and then play out the duel against the talents of the Eindhoven club in an adult way. That scenario actually came true thanks to Ole Romeny, who scored his first goal for FC Emmen.

What didn’t work in his first five matches in Drenthe’s service, succeeded after barely a minute in the second half against Jong PSV. After good pressure, Rui Mendez captured a diagonal ball from the back. The Portuguese only needed one second to control the ball and put Romeny away, Reda Kharchouch pulled the gap and the attacker who came over from NEC did the rest. “I made a body movement, put the keeper on the wrong foot and then hit with the inside left,” said Romeny, who put Emmen at 1-2 after a difficult first half.

‘I was really ready for this’

“An important goal at a wonderful moment,” the attacker continued. “I was really ready for this, because I also thought that I should have scored my first goal much earlier. In the first five games I was regularly close, I also hit the aluminum a few times, but now I finally have too Whether I would play more freely after that? That could well be the case, although I felt I was playing well throughout the game.”

Dancing in the locker room

The 1-3 victory (Mendes also scored) was celebrated exuberantly in the dressing room. “There was shouting, singing and dancing. We gave a good answer after that defeat against Helmond Sport and now on. On to next Friday.”
