He did make things a tad more difficult for his second after his heroics though after the skipper was sent off in stoppage time for a late lunge when he attempted to win possession back.

A third red card of the game followed when Vitesse's Danilho Doekhi was sent off deep into injury time, with Feyenoord holding out for the home win.
