Vitesse Arnhem collected a major trophy for the first time in its 125-year existence by beating AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch Cup final on Sunday.

Striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel scored twice in the final 10 minutes to seal the victory for a club which is owned by Russian businessman Alexander Chigirinsky.

Vitesse, which is sixth in the Dutch standings, has now qualified for the Europa League next season.

The club has close links with Chelsea and three players from the Premier League leaders featured in the final: Midfielders Lewis Baker and Nathan, and defender Matt Miazga.
