Netherlands can go all the way: Van Persie

Posted By: Staff

London, Jun 27 (ANI): Netherlands striker Robin van Persie van Persie believes that the present Dutch side will never have a better opportunity to lift the World Cup.

Van Persie said: "I sense this is our moment, this is our time. As we go forward, we can meet big, big teams but I'm really positive we can do something with this team."

"This is the best team I have played in so far. We have been on a great run in matches and when you look at the level in training, it is unbelievable," News of the World quoted him, as saying.

"The level is growing and growing every day. It was good when we got here. But now it is amazing," he added.

Apart from leading the Dutch strike force in the tournament, Van Persie is also relishing everything that goes with a World Cup, the atmosphere, the chaos, and the famous faces.

"People who love football are here, that's why Arsene Wenger has been here. He's a big fan. And it's great to see so many legends.

I've seen Zidane and Figo. There's a great buzz here," Van Persie said. (ANI)
