Dutch hope for Van Persie return

Published Add your comment

Holland coach Marco van Basten hopes to have Arsenal star Robin van Persie back in full training on Wednesday ahead of their opening Euro 2008 group match.

The Dutch, who comfortably beat Wales 2-0 on Sunday, head to their Swiss camp this week and Van Persie is expected to take an active role after a thigh injury.

"We have done well in three warm-up games, I am satisfied with our progress," Van Basten said. "The preparation has been good, we could have scored more goals against Wales but overall I am very pleased with the way our preparation is going for the finals."
