Holland finished off their enjoyable and successful World Cup campaign with a 3rd place finish, beating Brazil 3-0 in the 3rd/4th playoff.
Robin van Persie opened the scoring from the penalty spot, taking his goals tally to 4 for the tournament, a decent number and apt reflection of his overall performance.
The Manchester United striker took the time to thank hosts Brazil for putting on a fine show with an Instagram message, as well as the Oranje fans who followed the Dutch side en masse around Brazil.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the hosts Brasil for an incredible experience during our time in brasil!
