Joey van Walstijn can hardly believe it. The goalkeeper was very close to a unique achievement with HDM. On Sunday, the people of The Hague lost the European Cup Indoor final in Vienna to Harvestehuder from Hamburg (6-6, after shoot-outs). It was the end of a bizarre winter for the goalkeeper, who lost the competition on the field in the first half of the season.
