Man, U Lame! The US Soccer Twitter account didn’t take kindly to Robin van Persie celebrating Nani’s goal
Robin van Persie has noticeably been supporting his Manchester United teammates at the World Cup this summer.
After Wayne Rooney scored for England in the 2-1 defeat to Uruguay, van Persie spoke openly about his United strike-partner at a Holland press conference, and the Dutch forward stuck up for Rooney in front of the world’s media.
On Sunday night RVP was again cheering on his teammates from the sidelines; this time Luis Nani was the man to get behind as he fired Portugal 1-nil ahead against the United States.
Van Persie loudly cheered on Nani on Twitter after he put the Seleccao in front, only for the official US Soccer Twitter to react with a comedy reply.
