Man of the match Robin van Persie was pleased with how Holland raised their game in the second half to dump Romania out of Euro 2008 and advance to the quarter-finals with a perfect record from the ´Group of Death´.

Van Persie scored his second goal of the competition to clinch a 2-0 win over the Romanians at Bern´s Stade de Suisse Wankdorf on Wednesday night after Klaas Jan Huntelaar had opened the scoring.

"It´s a nice victory, definitely," said the Arsenal forward. "The first half was very difficult because they had eight men behind the ball but the second half there was a bit more space and we could pass it a little more easily forwards. Overall it was a good team performance."
