Oranjeboom! Robin van Persie became the Netherlands’ all-time top scorer by scoring a hat-trick in the 8-1 annihilation of Hungary in Friday’s World Cup qualifier. Those three goals gave him 41 in an Oranje shirt,so who better to celebrate with than the man whose record you’ve just equaled?

Van Persie leapt into the awaiting arms of the Netherlands’ assistant manager Patrick Kluivert when he drew level with the former Dutch striker’s record of 40 goals with a great header from Arjen Robben’s cross to give his side a 4-0 lead. 

Van Persie then went one better when he latched on to Robben’s cushioned header for his third. This time RVP decided to celebrate with his teammates and leave PK to look on in admiration.
