Striker Charisteas is finding his target

Angelos Charisteas, a key scorer in Greece’s sensational Euro 2004 triumph in Portugal, has since enjoyed less success at club-level competition, but the striker is showing signs of a scoring comeback with his current club Feyenoord in the top Dutch league. Charisteas headed in the equalizing goal in his side’s valuable 1-1 draw, away, against the Dutch league’s front-runner PSV Eindhoven. It was the Greek striker’s fourth goal with Feyenoord this season and second within a few days. He transferred to the Rotterdam club from archrival Ajax Amsterdam last summer. Eindhoven, which went into yesterday’s game looking for an 11th successive victory, leads the Dutch Eredivisie with 50 points from 19 games, 10 points ahead of second-placed Alkmaar. Feyenoord lies fourth with 36 points.
