Van Persie: We went on and on

Robin van Persie has praised his Netherlands teammates after they defeated Spain on Friday evening.

The Oranje humiliated La Roja in Salvador tonight, beating Vicente del Bosque’s men 5-1 in their opening group match.

“The match went exactly how the coaching staff predicted it would,” he told Dutch station NOS.

“Often, you quit after two or three goals. But we went on, and on, and on.”
