FC Utrecht stun PSV to go through in Dutch Cup

Eindhoven, Feb 5 (IANS) FC Utrecht caused an upset in the quarter-finals of the Dutch Cup football tournament beating PSV Eindhoven 3-1.

PSV’s new signing Marco van Ginkel, who arrived on loan from Chelsea and started as replacement for injured Andres Guardado, had the first chance of the match, but the visitors took control afterwards on Thursday, reports Xinhua.
