FULL-TIME from Rotterdam



Into injury-time

Three minutes to go with about 3 or 4 minutes injury-time


89mins: Decent ball in the Feyenoord area by Pizarro, sees the 'keeper scrambling to save

84mins Penalty to Feyenoord. Poor challenge by 17yr old Sam Hutchinson at right-back. Carlo saves an extremely poor Makaay penalty and makes a double save from the rebound!!!!!


78mins: Scott Sinclair on for Ferreira. And another super save from Carlo. Straight up the other end. Frank equalises for Chelsea after a typical Scott Sinclair run down the left. GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

77mins: Great Feyenoord interception otherwise Dids would have been in the clear.

76mins: STILL 1-0

After a few mins of connection problems Chelsea look like the team most likely to score. Shaunie looks very sharp still. Pizarro has had his first chance - a diffcult one- which he volleyed over the bar and Chelsea have had a couple of free kicks in dangerous positions.

66mins: Pizarro and Diarra on, Sidwell and Johnson off

62mins: The last five minutes has seen equal possession, although Sidwell gives the ball away and Drenthe races clear, but the defence tidies up after Drenthe slips. Drenthe substituted.

57mins: Great play by Haim as he controls a looping ball deep in Chelsea's penalty area. From a free-kick Carlo makes a great save. Chelsea clear the corner. Tempo is rising!!

56mins: Another Drogba offside, still the 'keeper makes a great save. Immediately Ferreira hits a hard fierce shot which the 'keeper has to make two attempts to save

55mins: Another close offside decision as Makaay is caught this time.

53mins: Better pressure from Chelsea.

50mins: Didier looks very sharp and wins corner. The resulting header over the bar.

49mins: Frank loses possession, Slorry breaks into the box and a great save from Carlo.

48mins: The changes have also brought instant rewards. Two very close offside calls. The first on Drogba, the second on Lampard

Chelsea subs: Cudicini, Drogba and Malouda on; Sheva, Cech and Joe Cole off

Feyenoord 1-0 Chelsea


FEYENOORD 1-0 CHELSEA (Hofland 45mins)



HOFLAND 45 mins with a header from a free-kick on Chelsea's left

43mins Feyenoord go so close

42mins Sheva controls the ball on his chest, looking for width, but the width isnt there so he plays it back to Lampard who hits a shot just wide from 30 yards.

40mins Another great ball over the top for Sheva to run on to. At the worse moment he slips and the 'keeper cleared at the edge of the area.

38mins TV pics showing Jose not looking TOO happy. Not surprised this is the worse game of the four pre-season games SO FAR!!

37mins Chelsea win their first and second corners.

36mins Shaunie is having a great time as Chelsea are denied a penalty as a Shaun cross hits the defender plum on the arm right in front of the Assistant.

33mins The REAL first Chelsea chance of the game. Shaunie does wonders down the right, send a wicked cross in Johnson returns the ball too Lampard who blasts over the air. Then Sheva breaks clear and the 'keeper saves, from the rebound Joey blasts in wide. Best Chelsea two minutes.

30mins First shot on target from Chelsea. Soft shot but a shot nonetheless from Joe Cole after a break from Chelsea's right.

27mins After a good passage of play. Ben Haim gets forward and wins a free-kick on Chelsea's right. Nothing came from it but Chelsea are still pressing, Joe Cole chips one in for Sheva but the ball travels on to the 'keeper.

23mins Drenthe having a field day against Ferreira sends another cross in - fortunately there wasn't a red/white shirt inside the area to connect

21mins First real effort from Drenthe fizzes past Cech's left hand post

19mins Very dour from Chelsea although Sheva chased down a poor back pass from Slory


17mins Feyenoord claim penalty after a surging run from Slory. Carvlaho clumsily stumbles into him. Ref waves plays on

15mins Johnson on Chelsea's left looks accomplished, whereas Lampard hasn't had a touch

12mins Feyenoord increase the pressure a poor headed clearance from Ferreira across the area see Makaay snap shot into the side netting.

10 mins Trying to play out from defence, Feyenoord win the first corner after Joe Cole loses possession. Corner cleared. Drenthe finding his feet down the left and whips a cross in which fizzes over the bar.

9mins There was more noise in the pre-match build-up than there is now. Crowd very quiet. No chances for either side

6 mins. Even though Chelsea have lined-up 4-3-3, Feyenoord are trying to play through the middle and Chelsea snuff out the short pass. Foul on Joe Cole in the centre-circle. Nothing comes from the free-kick

4mins Johnson loses possession of Feyenoord's right. Free-kick. Nothing came from it. Chelsea break and Sheva cuts in from the left and just blasts one over the bar.

46,000 sellout crowd, playing in wonderful evening sunshine, equal possession from both sides after 3 mins.
