Robin van Persie v Romania

Van Persie is going through something of a lean spell with Manchester United so he will have been happy to get on the scoresheet for his country last night.

The Dutchman bagged two in his side's 4-0 win over Romania to move him clear of Johan Cruyff's goalscoring tally of 33 for and alongside Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in 4th on the Dutch all-time list.

His second came from the spot but the first was a thing of real beauty. After some fine work from Arjen Robben, the Manchester United forward glanced in a fine header from a tight angle. Rafa Van der Vaart and Jeremain Lens got the others as the Oranje moved to the verge of qualifiying for the 2014 World Cup.
