During Holland’s 2-0 win over Chile, confirming their place at the top of the group, Louis van Gaal made two substitutions. Fer was brought on the pitch at 75 minutes, then scored on 77 minutes. Memphis was also a second half sub and he scored Holland’s second goal.

Arjen Robben was asked about how Van Gaal managed to get his substitutions just right.

“Maybe Louis does have a golden willy,” he replied, smiling.

When Robben’s comment was relayed to him, Van Gaal replied: “I don’t know. Truus [his wife] has never told me that!”
