RvP Won’t Miss World Cup

Following an injury-plagued season, there were fears that Robin van Persie might miss the World Cup after being taken off at half-time in Holland’s 2-0 win over Wales.

Van Persie has revealed to reporters in Holland that they should have nothing to worry about.

“I wouldn’t call it an injury,” he said. “It built up during the game so I decided it was sensible to come off.”

Louis van Gaal echoed Van Persie’s claims but revealed that taking the striker off was just a precaution.

“I hope so, and I think it is so,” van Gaal explained. “He has a little injury and I think it is better that you don’t risk a bigger injury by playing the second half. I think he made the right decision. It is not an important match. You don’t have to risk it.”

    Good news for the lad and the dutch, I worried when I seen him limp out at half time but I am glad everything is OK for the world cup, I dont really fancy the dutch chances with Robin in the side but without him, theyd have no chance.
