Much had been said about the absence of Arjen Robben in the run-up to the Oranje's opening fixture at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

Substitute Eljero Elia, in particular, staked a strong claim for a starting berth, laying the groundwork for the all-important second goal.

The story is too old to be commented.
