What They're Saying: Robin van Persie

"This World Cup is not about Robin van Persie. It is about our team doing well. I love a big tournament, but I don't need to have the limelight."

-- Netherlands striker Robin van Persie, who has never scored in the knockout round of a major tournament heading into the semifinal with Argentina. In group play, he scored three goals at this World Cup, once at Euro 2012, once at the 2010 World Cup, twice at Euro 2008, and once at the 2006 World Cup. (FIFA.com)

    not a great player... but a good one... why couldn't he keep his balance after his header against Spain... that was no superhuman effort, it was like Buzz Lightyear, falling with style, but why was he falling? LOL Here's hoping the diving Robben isn't allowed to play the final because wet get blessed with quality, attacking, non-brutal teams... Go Germany and Argentina
