KNVB emphasizes that FC Utrecht-RKC was played out by order of the mayor | Football

The KNVB emphasizes that the match between FC Utrecht and RKC Waalwijk should have been stopped definitively. That is also what the guidelines of the union prescribe, but due to interference from the mayor of Utrecht, this was deviated from.

FC Utrecht-RKC was stopped for the second time in the injury time of the second half because a plastic cup was thrown on the field. The game seemed to be over, but after a few minutes of delay, the last minutes of the injury time were played out.

“Our rules are clear: this should have been stopped permanently, despite the fact that there were only two minutes left to play,” said the association. “But the mayor can overrule this for reasons of her own and she has done that.”

At FC Utrecht-RKC, the cups ended up on the field after goals from FC Utrecht. After about an hour of play things went wrong for the first time, after the opening goal by Anastasios Douvikas (1-0). There were also cups on the field at the joy after Zakaria Labyad’s 2-0.

Although the game was played out, the ball was still all the time. The players of both clubs had mutually agreed not to play football anymore and so RKC goalkeeper Etienne Vaessen demonstratively kept the ball under his foot. The game ended in a 2-0 win for FC Utrecht.
