There was an air of gooner symmetry between Robin van Persie`s appearance as a second half substitute for Holland against France and Fabregas` appearance as a second half substitute for Spain against Russia. Both notched up a goal and an assist each in a game that ended 4-1 to their sides.
In a pulsating game that France were beginning to dominate despite being a goal down they should really have been on equal terms when Arsenal legend Henry missed a chance that 3 seasons ago he would have buried. Robin van Persie came on with a little over 30 minutes left and within 4 minutes he had met a great ball into the box from Robben with a left foot volley that Coupet got a hand to but couldn`t prevent from crossing the line. Effectively that sealed the game for Holland though French hopes flickered briefly as Henry scored adroitly, with the deftest of touches, only for Robben to restore the lead within a minute.
Into added time and van Persie picked up a ball from a horse-faced Dutch striker found Schneider on the edge of the area and then ran into the box creating the space for Sneijder to score with a great shot.
An interesting game for gooners as both sides featured Arsenal players both present and former with maybe just the right outcome. Robin should get the games he needs and unless France beat Italy Gallas will almost certainly get the holiday he needs.
