Here’s your goal of the World Cup (so far), courtesy of Dutch striker Robin Van Persie in the first half against Spain.
Angle by glorious angle.
HOLY GOAL https://t.co/LYaWOlIaZS

Sure, we’re only three games into the World Cup, but I’m guessing Van Persie’s goal will stand up as one of the best of the tournament considering the degree of difficulty and the opponent (defending World Cup champion).
It was the precursor to a 5-1 Dutch demolition of Spain. See all the goal carnage here.
