Zwolle stun Ajax again

PEC Zwolle stunned Ajax for the second time in as many cup finals as Stefan Nijland fired the Bluefingers to a 1-0 victory in the Dutch Super Cup at the Amsterdam ArenA.

The preseason encounter was a rematch of April's KNVB Cup final in which Zwolle inflicted a shock 5-1 hammering on Frank de Boer's Eredivisie winners in Rotterdam.

Ajax were out for revenge, but they would instead be thwarted in that quest and embarrassed in their own stadium.

After getting away from defender Mike van der Hoorn in the 54th minute, Nijland collected Kamohelo Mokotjo's pass before beating Kenneth Vermeer to ensure Zwolle claimed the Johan Cruijff Shield.
