Van Persie injured on Holland duty

LONDON, England, August 12- Manchester United forward Robin van Persie was taken off at half-time with a suspected thigh injury in Holland’s 4-1 World Cup qualifying win in Hungary.

Holland coach Louis van Gaal was keen to play down the substitution, telling SBS6: ‘We took off Robin for precautionary measures. It doesn’t seem to be too serious, but you never know. We didn’t want to take any risks.’

The 29-year-old has netted four goals in three games for Manchester United following his transfer from Arsenal last month. Van Persie also scored in Netherlands’ 2-0 World Cup qualifying victory against Turkey on Friday.

Jeremain Lens’ early opener was quickly cancelled out by a penalty from Balazs Dzsudzsak, but Bruno Martins Indi scored to give the Dutch a 2-1 half-time lead.

Lens hit his second and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar struck it the second half to ensure a convincing win.
