Soccer-Dream debut for Riedewald as Ajax teen grabs late double

Teenage debutant Jairo Riedewald scored twice in the final minutes as champions Ajax Amsterdam snatched a dramatic 2-1 win away at Roda JC Kerkrade on Sunday to end 2013 at the top of the Dutch league. The 17-year-old Riedewald equalised for Ajax with two minutes left and then scored a stoppage time winner. Roda, who fired coach Ruud Brood last week, had taken the lead after 34 minutes through defender Henk Dijkhuizen but the defeat leaves them just one point above the relegation zone. Ajax took over at the top from Vitesse Arnhem, who drew with Heracles Almelo on Saturday, on goal difference as the league takes a four-week mid-season break.
