Dutch-born Ghanaian youngster Rodney Antwi made a huge statement about his striking qualities after coming off the bench to score the match-winner for FC Utrecht in their stunning 2-1 win over giants Feyenoord and ended their ten-year dominance. 

Feyenoord, the host, unsurprisingly dominated proceedings and claimed the opener in the when Mitchell Te Vrede looped a header over Utrecht's keeper in the 33rd minute of the first-half.

However Utrecht pecked the scoring just before the break, through former Arsenal youngster Nacer Barazite. And, Antwi climbed off the bench to score the match-winner.

The 18-year-old had replaced another second team graduate Issa Kallon in the 58th minute and netted the match-winner 18 minutes from time.

Australian international Tommy Oar raced through the center with a pace and power and laid a defence-splitting pass to Antwi who maintained his calm after shrugging off a challenge from a Feyenoord defender to firmly plant the ball beyond the on-rushing Feyenoord keeper.
