Ajax hits back to win Dutch Super Cup.

Siem de Jong scored in extra-time to earn Ajax the first piece of silverware of the new Dutch season as it came from two goals down to edge out AZ 3-2 in the Johan Cruyff Schaal.

 The KNVB Beker holder looked to be on course for victory when Johann Berg Gudmundsson gave it a 52nd-minute lead which was doubled by Aron Johansson in the 68th minute.

But an own goal from Jeffrey Gouweleeuw a minute later gave Ajax a route back into the match and the Eredivisie champion made the most of it by adding an equaliser from Kolbeinn Sigthorsson six minutes later.

Ajax then completed the comeback 13 minutes into extra-time thanks to De Jong's header to secure the Super Cup for the eighth time in its history.
