Feyenoord won the Sunday in the first round of the Premier league in the own Cockpit with 2-1 to FC Twente. Toornstra gave in the second half from a free kick and the assist on the winning hit of Steven Berghuis, who this summer after a rental period, the final was taken from Watford.

In addition to mountain house were, among others, Kevin Diks, Ridgeciano Haps and Jean-Paul Boëtius added to the selection. The new foursome was in the base against FC Twente. The FC Utrecht came Sofyan Amrabat came on as a substitute in the field.
