Oliseh’s Substitutes Inspired Dutch Side To Comeback From Two Goals Down


Former coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Sunday Oliseh showed his inspirational side by rallying his team Fortuna Sittard from two goals down to draw 2-2 away to FC Dordrecht.


Oliseh’s team went two goals down after 32 minutes with Alvin Daniels and Joris Kramer finding the back of the net for Dordrecht, a lead which they protected uptil the half-time break.

Fortuna Sittard coach Oliseh responded to his team going two goals down in the first half by introducing Finn Stokkers who reduced the deficit to 2-1 in the 54th minute, eight minutes after coming on for Sjoerd Ars.

Another inspired substitution by the coach in the 52nd minutes completed the comeback, with substitute Roald van Hoult drawing them level with 18 minutes left to play after coming on for Djibril Dianessy in the 52nd minute.

Despite the moral boost of picking a point away from home, Fortuna Sittard are still in the drop zone in 17th position with 20 points from 23 games.
