Netherlands 11-0 San Marino: Robin van Persie nets four in record victory

Netherlands have recorded their biggest win ever as they beat San Marino 11-0 to maintain their perfect record in the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign. Goals from Robin van Persie (4x), Wesley Sneijder (2x), John Heitinga, Dirk Kuyt, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (2x) and Georginio Wijnaldum helped Oranje to the full three points in Eindhoven.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nice, we did our job well as #1 of the world :)

Van Persie is still class, a real 'number 10' is needed for Van Persie to score many goals for Arsenal!

The team did good, but don't exaggerate, San Marino only manage to won 1 game, and that is against Liechtenstein where they won 1-0, and what worst they conceded -44 lol But the country is pretty small

Being number one but never having won the world cup is a sorry state of affairs though.

Yeah tends to show how worthless fifa's official rankings are

I think you don't know how the Fifa Ranking system work do you? They rank the team of their consistency such as how many games they won, how consistence they are in the later round etc, is not really base on if you win World Cup or some kind of trophy, but winning those trophy does boost the ranking but not as much as people would think though

I do dont worry . I just usually find thir system flawed and hardly the best barometer .

Not that i have anything to say against the Netherlands team mind you . I'm actually a fan .
