Huntelaar late show wins cup for Ajax

May 7, 2006

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands, May 7 (Reuters) - Klaas-Jan Huntelaar struck in injury time to give Ajax Amsterdam a 2-1 win over champions PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch Cup final on Sunday.

Two minutes into the second half Huntelaar opened the scoring when he nodded in a Wesley Sneijder corner. PSV, though, hit back five minutes later when Michael Lamey equalised with a fierce shot.

Midway through the second half Ajax's Czech midfielder Tomas Galasek received a red card for his second booking but minutes later PSV defender Lamey was also sent off.

Extra time loomed but when Michael Ball failed to clear a cross from Nourdin Boukhari, Huntelaar was on hand to touch home Ajax's winner at the near post.
