Bassey dropped against G.A. Eagles but Ajax Falters in Title Race


Calvin Bassey was an unused substitute on Sunday when Ajax play away at G.A. Eagles in the Eredivisie.

Bassey returned from the international break where he featured in just one game for Nigeria, but the defender was dropped right to the bench.

The league champions lost further grounds in the title defence bid, having picked just one point in the last two games.

Before the break John Heitinga’s men lost in a thrilling match to league leaders Feyenoord.

It was a five-goal thriller decided by Lutsharel Geertruida’s 86th minute header after the teams each trailed in the game.

Calvin Bassey featured for the entire duration of the match at the Johan Cruijff Arena.

Meanwhile, there are seven round of matches left to play in the Eredivisie and Ajax will hope to find a winning formula for the rest of the season.
