Oldenburg Fortuna easily mastered the first hurdle in the DFB Cup. Against Oldenburg, it was Rowan Hennings who once again managed to impress the team as a top scorer. What does a coach say about veterans performance.
Fortuna showed no nudity in the first round of the DFB Cup at the top-tier club from Oldenburg. The Dusseldorf team won 5-0 in the fifth division. It was coach Christian Breuser who made it clear before the match not to underestimate the opponent. The goal has been accomplished. “I am very satisfied with our performance today,” he said after the meeting. “We’ve achieved our goal of dealing with the next round – now we can define that task.”
Fortunes completed this task very seriously. This was supposed to impress the nearly 2,000 fans who traveled with us. They have been spared another cup of shame. “It feels good when you see a lot of Düsseldorf number plates on your way to the stadium,” Breuser says. “We felt the support of the fans. And I think we can give them something back as well.”
And first and foremost, Rowan Hennings, who captained the team against Oldenburg as captain on the field. The 33-year-old scored twice and his followers celebrated loudly after his substitution. “It is good for us when our striker scores goals,” Prosser said. “He did a good game, not only because he scored two goals. He defends well, prepares and presses well.”
Hennings himself remains as you know him: relaxed. In addition to the two goals, he also had a scoring assist. A cross passed by Carsten Abbas 2-0 from Oldenburg into his own net. “I think the coach can be satisfied with that,” Hennings says dryly. “In terms of playing, you can take a little from a game like this, but of course it’s good that we scored five goals and were able to gain some self-confidence.”
This may also be needed more urgently in the coming week. He will visit Fortuna on Saturday 1. FC Nuremberg on the third day of the second division.
