Football: Ajax take lead by beating Heracles
In the Dutch Premier League, Ajax are leading the table after their 2 – 3 away victory over Heracles Almelo.
Heracles soon took the lead thanks to a fine shot by Willy Overtoom. Just before half-time Ajax equalised thanks to Siem de Jong, who slightly altered the direction of a powerful shot by Miralem Sulejmani.
In the second half, De Jong scored a second goal, with Sulejmani netting the decisive third goal. Glynor Plet managed to bring the score to 3-2 but Heracles never came close to equalising, not even after Lorenzo Ebicilio’s stupid red card.
