Van Persie’s Overhead Diving Header Versus Spain

Netherlands’ Van Gaal’s tactics were spot on: absorb pressure and counter attack fast.

with your friends!

And counter-attack they did. They blew past Spain’s aging midfield and let their world-class strikers loose. Both Van Persie and Robben had golden-boot quality games. Just watch this first goal from Van Persie which will make every Manchester United fan excited for next season:

Spain are now in a battle to qualify past the group stage. If Chile manages to beat Netherlands, even if Spain win their next two games, they will risk not moving on.

I said it several times – Spain must solve their striker issue if they hope to leave the group.

    “overhead” is easier to say than “come from behind”
