Van Persie on target in routine Feyenoord win over VVV-Venlo


Robin van Persie was among the scorers as Feyenoord swept aside VVV-Venlo 4-1 in the Eredivisie.

The former Arsenal and Manchester United striker claimed his team’s second goal during a one-sided encounter.

Tonny Vilhena swept Feyenoord into a 28th-minute lead before Van Persie struck five minutes later to leave VVV with a second half mountain to climb.

Sam Larsson then put the issue beyond doubt 10 minutes after the restart, and although Tino Susic cut the deficit to 3-1, a second Larsson goal completed the scoring.

Feyenoord remain third in the table, five points behind Ajax and seven adrift of leaders PSV Eindhoven.
