Robin van Persie scores hat-trick and sets all-time Holland goalscoring record

by Sam Peoples

Robin van Persie has become Holland’s all time top goalscorer after he scored a brilliant hat-trick against Hungary.

His hat-trick means he has scored 41 goals in 80 appearances for Holland and overtakes a record set by Patrick Kluivert.

As he was substituted off, the Dutch supporters rose to their feet and gave van Persie a standing ovation.

Given that he missed training earlier this week, van Persie put in a fantastic performance to score a hat-trick and it was exactly what United supporters wanted to see.

So far this year, he has not been at his best but after this hat-trick, his season could get started.

Well done van Persie.
