‘Very proud’ Willem II sensation Isak enjoys fans from Eritrea: ‘Great to see’

Isak was directly involved in the last eleven goals of Willem II (eight goals, three assists). Fans from Eritrea where he has his roots, fanatically encouraged him from the stands in the match against Zwolle and gave him a flag. Isak, in turn, threw his shirt at the Eritrean fans. He is the son of Eritrean parents.

Isak is also the first player to find the net in seven consecutive Premier League matches since Vincent Janssen did for AZ in the 2015-2016 season. It is a club record for Willem II, according to Gracenote data agency. Thanks to his goal and an assist, Willem II won 2-0 against PEC Zwolle.

Five Dutch players scored twelve or more goals in their first twelve league games. Hans Venneker was the last to deliver such a piece of art in the 1964-1965 season. At that time he made sixteen for Feyenoord.
