Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has revealed he hasn't been fully fit for six years. He was forced out of the Netherlands' final warm-up friendly against Wales with a groin twinge and appeared to be struggling in training over the weekend.
Van Persie said: "I can't remember a game over the last five or six years where I haven't felt some pain somewhere.
"The groin complaint I had you can't even call an injury. I've had so many of those complaints.
"I'm no longer bothered by my groin and I have been able to give my all in the training sessions.
"I'm completely ready for the game against Spain.
"Spain are a good side, but so are we."
