Robin van Persie
30-Year-Old Forward Manchester United Premier
Van Persie, who was battling a stomach bug and was an injury doubt for the Netherlands' World Cup semifinal against Argentina on Wednesday, started and playing 96 minutes but did not attempt a single shot during the match.
The game was a snoozer that eventually went to penalties, which Argentina won 4-2. Van Persie didn't appear to be bothered by any weakness from the virus at all, so he will likely be okay to play against Brazil in the third-place game.
