Robin van Persie: Header is First Amazing Goal of the 2014 World Cup

By Mike Cardillo

Robin van Persie, take a bow. That’s a goal GIFs are made for.

While there might have been some controversy over the penalty that gave Spain a 1-0 lead over the Netherlands in their 2010 World Cup final rematch, there was nothing but awe and appreciation for van Persie’s amazing header right before the stroke of halftime which tied the score.

Props to Daley Blind for that perfect ball to set up RVP. Iker Casillas never had a chance.
