Van Persie has been in fabulous scoring form so far this season for United and he was also on target in Holland’s last outing.

The new-look Dutch side also includes Inter Milan’s playmaker Wesley Sneijder and Bayern Munich’s attacker Arjen Robben for the contest tonight.

Amongst the substitutes are forwards Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who knows his way around the box and every working Dirk Kuyt.

Fulham attacker Zoltan Gera will lead the way for the home side, while Vladimir Koman and Tamas Priskin are expected to provide valuable assistants.
