22nd June 2011, Comments 0 comments

The Dutch under-17 national football team drew in their second match in the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico on Tuesday night. Under Coach Albert Stuivenberg they held up against  North Korea, the match ended in a 1-all draw.

Shortly after halftime at the Morelos Stadium in Morelia, the Orange defence weakened considerably. Danzell Gravenberch eventually scored the equalizer with just 15 minutes left to play. A goal from striker Anass Achbar was ruled offside.

The Dutch team lost their first World Cup game against Congo 1-0. This Friday they will take on Mexico. Orange needs to win that match to have a chance of moving forward to the next round.
