Robin van Persie scores fine goal for Fenerbahce

Robin van Persie, who not so long ago was recognised as the most lethal striker in the Premier League, has endured a tricky time since leaving English soil behind in favour of a move to Turkey. 

At Fenerbahce, things haven't entirely gone to plan for the former Manchester United and Arsenal man. 

With just six goals in 16 Super Lig appearances, the experienced forward has hardly come to prominence at his new club.

But it's safe to say that Van Persie has still got it. Indeed, the 32-year-old enjoyed a wonderful evening as his side destroyed Giresunspor by six goals to one in the Turkey Cup on Wednesday. 

The goals were quite something, too; while Van Persie's latter strike was definitely the standout moment of the match, his first goal should also be admired.

In truth, it was a typical Van Persie finish; with the ball entering his path, the Dutchman waited patiently before smashing the ball home with perfect accuracy.

But his second goal was very, very good; producing two beautifully sharp turns, Van Persie initially fooled the Giresunspor defender before tricking a very confused goalkeeper. 

Whatever you do, don't show the goals to Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal...
