Robin Van Persie Gave His Medal and Armband to a Netherlands Fan in Crowd

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJuly 12, 2014

Robin Van Persie may have inflicted misery on Brazil during the World Cup third-place play-off on Saturday, but he made a Dutch fan's day when he gave away his captain's armband and medal.

The medal might not have taken pride of place in Van Persie's home, but you can be pretty sure it will do in that supporter's house.

Either that or you'll see it on eBay as soon as he gets home.
