Top three goals: Kevin van Veen

13 June 2017

Dutchman Kevin van Veen sat down with our programme team to pick out his three best career strikes, from an already impressive catalogue.

FC Oss 3-2 De Graafschap - 30th August 2014

KVV: I’m sure people in England have seen it, because it’s in the clips of my goals in Holland. There was a long ball from the centre-back, which went over my head, but I got a touch on it, let it bounce and smashed it into the top right hand corner of the goal. It was a big goal in that game as well, because it put us 3-2 ahead and it turned out to be the winner.

Oldham Athletic 2-4 Scunthorpe United - 10th October 2015
KVV: Oldham was something special because it was a long run where I beat four people, and also nutmegged a defender too. I don’t tend to panic much in front of goal and I always feel I can finish in different ways, so either with my left or right, or like on this occasion, a dink. I think the ‘keeper gambled that I was going to put the ball to the left or the right, but he went down and I chipped it over him. I was really happy with it because it made sure of the 4-2 win for us. It was a good feeling for me that it won goal of the season too.

Fleetwood Town 2-2 Scunthorpe United - 13th August 2016
KVV: That one was an absolute rocket into the top corner. At that moment I had the feeling that I could do something special, and I wasn’t playing that well in the game. However, I got the ball and just whacked it into the top corner. When I received the ball, I already imagined it in my mind going in the back of the net, and when I hit it I had the feeling. That was a great time to score, because it made the game 2-2 and kept us up the top end of the table.
