Robin van Persie was removed at half-time during Holland’s 4-1 win against Hungary. He received a knock to his left thigh but Holland’s manager, Louis Van Gaal, claims the substitution was just precautionary.

“Robin Van Persie was taken off as a precaution,” said Van Gaal.

This news follows Shinji Kagawa’s withdrawal from Japan’s squad today after he felt a twinge in his back. He has since confirmed that it is nothing serious.
