Pre-Season Friendly: Den Haag 0 Swansea 1

13 July 2013 15:25

New signing Wilfried Bony made his debut as Swansea rounded off their pre-season tour of the Netherlands with a 1-0 win over Den Haag.

The Ivory Coast striker was given his first taste of action since completing his club-record £12million move to the Liberty Stadium from Vitesse Arnhem earlier this week, appearing as a second-half substitute in what proved to be a tough run out on Saturday.

Swansea - without Chico Flores, who flew home from the tour for family reasons - also featured fellow new signings Jose Canas, Jonjo Shelvey, Alejandro Pozuelo and Pablo Hernandez, while Jordi Amat joined Bony in making an appearance from the bench.

After a bright start in which Michu saw a diving header drop just wide, Swansea took the lead after 21 minutes. Shelvey found Wayne Routledge 20 yards out, and the winger controlled the ball before lifting a shot over the advancing Den Haag goalkeeper Gino Coutinho.

Shelvey then almost scored a spectacular second when he lofted a chip from 45 yards onto the top of the Den Haag net, before the former Liverpool man made way at the interval, as Bony was one of a raft of substitutions.

Ninos Gouriye came close to an equaliser for Den Haag with a dipping shot that was deflected over the crossbar 11 minutes in to the second half, before Bony went close to scoring his first Swansea goal only to be denied by a fine stop from Coutinho.
