Locadia thrilled with winning strike

PSV Eindhoven forward Jurgen Locadia could not hide his delight after his match-winning goal against Ajax Amsterdam in their Eredivise clash on Sunday.

The reigning champions looked to have ended their fierce rivals' title ambitions, as Feyenoord hold a four-point lead with two games remaining in the Dutch top-flight.

Locadia said he 'needed no second invitation', when he was provided with an opportunity with a dead ball set-piece, as he smashed an unstoppable drive past de Godenzonen goalkeeper André Onana in the 25th minute.

"When we won a free kick, I needed no second invitation. I stepped up and curled the ball into the top corner of the net," he told the club's website.

"We had not yet beaten any of our nearest rivals this season yet, so we felt it was about time to win a big match."

Locadia, who recently signed a new three-year deal with Boeren, has scored three goals and registered as many assists in 12 matches, during an injury-hit campaign.
