AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - PSV Eindhoven cruised to a 3-0 win over Vitesse Arnhem to seal its 18th league championship in the Nettherlands Saturday.
Even without half a team of starters, PSV had no problems disposing of Vitesse after first half goals of Park Ji-Sung and Mark van Bommel.
Park broke the deadlock midway through the first half when he pulled the trigger from 22 yards and then set up skipper Van Bommel to double the lead a minute before the break.
Gerald Sibon made it 3-0 with three minutes to go.
``This is a very unexpected but beautiful title'' said an emotional coach Guus Hiddink.
``This team is the ideal mix of young talented players and experienced older winners.''
