Ajax 2 reached the third round of the Amstel Cup by beating T.E.C. in Tiel 3-0. The reserves of Ajax now face first-division side FC Den Bosch in the next round.
On the grounds of amateur club T.E.C. Ajax 2 played well and focussed. The only thing lacking was precision in the finishing. Ajax could have won by a bigger margin.
Anthony Obodai, who was joined by fellow first-teamers Maarten Stekelenburg, Johnny Heitinga, Nigel de Jong, Jelle van Damme and Nicolae Mitea, scored twice for the team of coaches Johnny van 't Schip and Marco van Basten. Australian striker Jason Culina made Ajax's third goal from the penalty spot.
Ajax 2 have drawn FC Den Bosch as the opponent in the third round. The match will be played on 28 or 29 October in Den Bosch.
