Robin van Persie has trained with the Dutch national team after recovering from a minor ankle knock sustained in midweek.

The Arsenal striker, who missed almost the entire second half of the season due to an ankle injury, is expected to be involved in tomorrow’s friendly with Ghana.

Holland coach Bert van Marwijk revealed that he is delighted with the progress of the 27-year-old.

“I am very pleased with the progress of Robin van Persie after such a long injury. He has quickly got back to the level he was at before. “

Tomorrow’s Netherlands v Ghana match kicks off at 18:30 GMT.

    Good news, I hope he goes on to have a fantastic tournament at the World cup in South Africa and an excellent season with the gunners next season. He is so committed to Arsenal.

    Further proof that RVP might be a great player-and should Cesc leave;their last remaining World Class Performer!- but he is also very fragile and cannot be counted upon the get through an entire season unscathed.This being the case is Bentner good enough to be first choice back up?If he was playing for any other club,for example,would we be worried by his “abilities”-I think not!

    awesome news for arsenal and the netherlands!
    just wanted to ask why this site seem to have two different layouts, this red and white, and one blackish and white when i’m on another internet

    In fairness Joel, and I know people go on about it, but Bendtner is very young and has improved in every season he’s been with us. He scored 15 goals the season before last and scored 12 last season in 20 less games so he’s only going to get better. Watch out for him next season!!
