Even though RVP’s “flying” goal was a spectacular one and it actually opened the account for Netherlands against Spain, it is their fifth goal, scored by winger Arjen Robben that remains with us even after 3 days after the game.
Metro has this here Apparently, the dutch winger’s sprint was clocked at 37 kmph whereas defender Ramos run was clocked only at 30 kmph. It has even managed to beat Theo Walcott’s record of ~ 35 kmph.
Robben’s blistering pace and then supreme control of the ball proved too much for the Spanish defence. He toyed around for some time with the goal keeper Casillas and then scored.
What a match. What a goal!!
