Arjen Robben once again lit up the World Cup with yet another man of the match performance in Holland’s 2-0 win against Chile.
Robben, 30, has been the player of the tournament far by quite some margin and Louis van Gaal‘s impact on the whole Holland side is clear as they have been playing fantastic attacking football so far.
It puts Holland atop the group with a maximum nine points and leaves them with a likely game against Croatia or Mexico, so long as Brazil beat Cameroon, Van Gaal’s side will be strong favourites to at least reach the quarter-final.
Speaking after the game, Robben joked with Dutch reporters that Van Gaal is ‘so lucky he must have a golden willy, to which Van Gaal responded:
“I don’t know. Truus [Van Gaal’s wife] has never said that.”
That side to Van Gaal is something United fans certainly can’t wait to see.
He’s a real character off the pitch and if Holland’s performances are anything to go by, the impact he is having on the pitch is just as impressive.
