PSV Eindhoven was held to a 1-1 draw at Feyenoord in the Dutch league on Tuesday to snap a 12-game winning streak. PSV captain Phillip Cocu curled a 25-meter shot past Feyenoord goalkeeper Henk Timmer in the 24th minute to score first. Angelos Charisteas, who scored the winner for Greece in the 2004 European Championship final, headed the equalizer from a free kick by defender Royston Drenthe in the 38th. "I thought we played better in the first half and we could have made it 2-0," PSV coach Ronald Koeman said. "Then the referee gave some questionable free kicks, and out of one of those the equalizer fell and it turned into a real match." PSV leads the league with 50 points, 10 ahead of second-place AZ Alkmaar. Ajax is third with 38 and Feyenoord is next with 36. Koeman said that Feyenoord, coached by his brother Erwin Koeman, was better in the second half. "It's not really possible to say one side deserved to win," he said. "I figure if you're going to drop points, you could do so against worse teams than Feyenoord." Charisteas scores Charisteas' goal was the first that PSV goalkeeper Gomes had conceded in 10 games. "We played a fine game today and we have to be satisfied with this point," Erwin Koeman said. Gomes made a late, reflex save to stop a close-range shot from Drenthe. "It's difficult to score against us, it's true, the way we're playing right now," Gomes said. Also Tuesday, Willem II beat Excelsior Rotterdam 2-1 and Sparta Rotterdam won 1-0 at FC Groningen. Willem II substitute Kristof Imschoot scored in the 82nd and 85th minutes after Andwele Slory had scored for Excelsior in the 11th, while Edwin van Bueren scored in the 64th for Sparta. FC Groningen has 27 points, Sparta has 19 and Willem II and Excelsior have 16. On Wednesday, it's: Ajax vs Roda JC; NEC Nijmegen vs SC Heerenveen; FC Utrecht vs Heracles Almelo; FC Twente vs AZ Alkmaar; NAC Breda vs Vitesse Arnhem and ADO The Hague vs RKC Waalwijk.
