RVP Deserved Applause

Netherlands defender Jeffrey Bruma says that Oranje captain Robin van Persie deserved his applause following his record breaking moment against Hungary.

The Manchester United forward became the all-time top scorer for his country with 41 goals in 80 games - beating Patrick Kluivert's previous record of 40 strikes.

The forward was then removed from the action in the 61st minute and was treated to a standing ovation at the Amsterdam ArenA.

"Something is obviously worth a round of applause, so we just stood there and clapped in front of him," the PSV man told De Telegraaf.

"Our goal was to win and Van Persie also had a personal goal. He seized his opportunity with both hands."

The 21-year-old also discussed the opportunity he was given to start in the 8-1 win, saying that it felt like a reward for his hard work.

"I work hard and then it feels like a reward," he concluded. "It is a sign I am on the right track.

"I felt super sharp and full of concentration [versus Hungary], but it was also a game I could fully enjoy on the field."
