Former Liverpool man Kuyt leads Feyenoord to victory over Chelsea’s youngsters in Holland

On-loan Chelsea youngsters Izzy Brown, Lewis Baker, Dom Solanke and Nathan all featured for Vitesse as the Dutch side went down 2-0 on Sunday to a Feyenoord side littered with former Premier League stars.

Baker played the full 90 minutes for Vitesse, while Brazilian midfielder Nathan replaced his Stamford Bridge teammate Brown with 25 minutes to play in Rotterdam. Striker Solanke came on for Abiola Dauda in the 79th minute.

Former Liverpool favourite Dirk Kuyt scored the opener for Feyenoord, who are coached by ex-Arsenal, Rangers and Barcelona star Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

Karim El Ahmadi (Aston Villa) and Colin Kazim-Richards (Bury, Brighton & Hove Albion, Sheffield United and Blackburn Rovers) also turned out for the Dutch giants, who are hoping to end a 16-year Eredivisie title drought this season.
