Toivonen double in Shield win

PSV beat Ajax 4-2 this afternoon to win the Johan Cruijff Schaal at the Amsterdam ArenA.

Ajax were overpowered at their home ground by Dick Advocaat's side, who took the lead after just three minutes as Ola Toivonen headed home a Dries Mertens corner.

It was the fastest goal in the competition's history and the Eindhoven side doubled their lead after 11 minutes. Jeremain Lens steamed up from the right and after beating Daley Blind for pace chipped over goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer from 12 yards.

Ajax were back in the game a minute before the break when a Theo Janssen corner was headed home by centre-half Toby Alderweireld.

However eight minutes into the second half PSV extended their two-goal advantage when, after he was played in by Jetro Willems, Toivonen powered his shot home from eight yards.

With 15 minutes left Ajax pulled a goal back when Marcello put the ball into his own net but Georginio Wijnaldum secured the win in injury-time.
