VIDEO: Robin van Persie brace including stunner leaves him on brink of record

by Sam Peoples

Robin van Persie scored a brace against Andorra tonight that puts him two goals away from becoming Holland’s joint highest ever goalscorer.

The 30-year-old’s first goal was a sublime curled effort from outside of the area while his second was a case of being in the right place at the right time, a trademark of any world class striker.

His goals mean that van Persie (38) has overtaken Dennis Bergkamp (37) and only has Patrick Kluivert (40) in front of him in Holland’s all-time highest goalscorer list.
