There was a bit of afters between Robin van Persie and Darren Fletcher during International week, as Scotland took on Holland in World Cup qualifying. Van Persie was probably still feeling the hurt of Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to United, particularly given that he scored a goal deep in to injury time which was rightly ruled [...]
