Comments

  1. I can’t cheer for him since he left Arsenal, but I will give credit where credit is due … Nice pass!

  2. Not too many of the must see goals I watch more than once, this one I certainly did. Incredible pass and even better finish. Crazy control.

  3. despite being their top record scorer and captain, many dutch fans feel letdown by him. he’s just not as great for the NT as he is for his club. in fact he has only scored like 2 world cup goals despite playing in 2 world cups.

  4. I like Netherlands. Even dating a Dutch woman.
    But I’m not super-impressed by this. There was absolutely no defensive pressure on him. Great control, sure, but this was an easy goal for him.

    • No defensive pressure because that is a ridiculous pass. Not a run you typically need to cover tightly. Van Persie’s made a high risk, high reward run. He collected a line drive in stride with absolute perfection. Perhaps he just made it look too easy.
