Euro 2008: Robin van Persie out of Holland’s Opening Match against Italy

It is really very bad news for Holland fans as Coach Marco van Basten has decided not to consider striker Robin van Persie for their opening match against Italy in Euro 2008. The Arsenal striker is recovering from his thigh injury and coach admits that van Persie does not have any physical problem at this moment, but he needs to be back at his prime in order to make himself countable for the starting line up. However, Arsenal striker is still upbeat regarding his chances of making it to the starting line up against Italy.

Netherlands has been drawn into Group C alongside world champion Italy, France and in form Romania. Specialists have already termed it as a ‘group of death’. Moreover, Holland is going to start its Euro 2008 campaign against world champions Italy. So, losing a player of van Persie’s class is a big blow for Holland.

Robin van Persie missed a large part of the last season being out with various injuries at Arsenal. Though he came back to action later on but could not make any significant impression in Arsenal’s performance last season. So, it is clear that he lacks enough match practice as well. However, Robin van Persie is still young and full of talent. So, it is very possible for him to come back in action with his prime form in Euro 2008 tournament. This is what; Dutch fans are eagerly waiting for at this moment.
