Robin Van Persie’s brace in Tuesday night’s World Cup Qualifier against Andorra has assured Holland a ticket to Brazil 2014.

The Manchester United star continued with his stellar international form by adding to his penalty against Estonia on the weekend with two goals in the space of five minutes.

Five minutes after the interval, Kevin Strootman delivered the ball from the right wing and Van Persie capitalized, striking the ball into the back of the net from 25 yards out.

Van Persie’s second goal came after Andorra goalkeeper Ferran Pol fumbled Darryl Janmaat’s cross into the path of the Dutchman who slotted the ball from close range allowing The Oranje to book their spot in next year’s World Cup finals.
