A world-class goal by Vito van Crooij helped VVV Venlo record a 2-1 victory at FC Twente to maintain their perfect start to the campaign.

The home side who started their season with a narrow 2-1 loss in Rotterdam to Feyenoord last weekend started brightly and after only two minutes Kvasina hit the post before Danny Holla shot wide.

However, VVV, confident from their win over Sparta last weekend, then took control and on 23 minutes they took the lead with Vito van Crooij hammering a shot into the top corner from a tight angle. The winger was then played through on goal just moments later, but this time saw his effort saved by Tukkers stopper Jorn Brondeel.

Fredrik Jensen came within inches of equalising for FC Twente with a low strike but four minutes before the break poor defending led to VVV doubling their lead. A corner was missed by Brondeel and headed across goal by Ralf Seuntjens to an unmarked Jerold Promes who steered the ball into the net.

Twente improved in the second half and eventually pulled a goal back through Tom Boere, who netted his first for the club. The hosts then pushed for an equaliser but that left space for VVV who nearly sealed the game through Van Crooij and then Promes, who was denied by a good save.

The Limburgers held on for a narrow victory which means they have now won two from two in their return to the top flight. Twente have lost both their opening games and sit 2nd bottom.
