El Ghazi impresses in Ajax defeat
Moroccan winger Anwar El Ghazi has emerged as one of the early stars of the Eredivisie season following another goal for Ajax.
Ajax may have been defeated by rivals PSV Eindhoven, but the continued emergence of Anwar El Ghazi continues to please fans at the Amsterdam ArenA.
Following an assist against Vitesse and a goal in the 3-1 victory over AZ Alkmaar last weekend, El Ghazi made his first-ever league start for Ajax against rivals PSV.
The contest started perfectly for the winger as he scored inside 16 minutes, heading home deftly past Jeroen Zoet after meeting Davy Klassen’s pass.
However, the home side let the initiative slip in the second half as PSV ran rampant. Tottenham Hotspur Memphis Depay scored the equaliser on 52 minutes, before Luciano Narsingh gave the visitors the lead.
As Ajax attempted to get back in the game, Florian Jozefzoon made them pay, exposing some poor defending to score PSV’s third.
