Danny Blind’s Cross to Robin van Persie

When the cross is better than the goal…? While Robin van Persie’s diving header of a goal was amazing, incredible really,  the cross by Danny Blind was equally brilliant. Two Manchester United players who are certainly missed right now. The Dutch connection.

Look at how the soccer ball flies right into the path of Robin van Persie. Laser like. This is how you drive the ball into a teammate. Notice how Blind doesn’t follow through but stops short when he strikes the ball. Wonderful goal all around. The Dutch connection. Poor Iker Casillas has no chance as the soccer ball sails over his head. Beautiful goal made possible by a perfect cross.

Watch the Danny Blind cross and the amazing diving header by Robin van Persie.

Robin van Persie’s stunning, leaping header from the edge of the box against Spain was one of the highlights of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.
