Having lost the opening day fixture to Feyenoord at home, Willem II came into the game all guns blazing, and after just 18 minutes, Görkem Sağlam found Okyere Wreidt who slotted home the opener.

Görkem Sağlam created the second goal, after serving Che Nunley with a sumptuous assist.

There was no way back for Vitesse in front of their own crowd as Wesley Spieringhs completed the scoring with eight minutes left.

It was an emphatic display by Willem II, who survived the drop last season.

Kwasi Okyere Wreidt joined the Dutch club from German giants, Bayern Munich last summer, but struggled with injuries.

Even with the injury troubles, he managed eight goals and two assists in the Dutch topflight league.

He earned his debut Black Stars call up under former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah but could not make the trip to Egypt for AFCON 2019.

He was also invited by C.K Akonnor for the AFCON qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome in March this year.

However, he missed the latest call up for the World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Ethiopia next month.

Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that, Ghana coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, is very confident of ending the country's over three decades of AFCON trophy drought ahead of the Nations Cup next year.

The former Black Stars captain is taking inspiration from past winners of the competition for Ghana, with all being local coaches.

In a zoom presser, monitored by YEN.com.gh, the gaffer reacted to the AFCON 2021 draw and has asked Ghanaians to believe in him.
