US Soccer have branded Manchester United and Dutch ace Robin van Persie as "LAME". Van Persie was delighted for United teammate Nani when he scored against the USA in yesterday's 2-2, tweeting his support. RvP had done the same for fellow United striker Wayne Rooney when he scored in England's defeat to Uruguay.

But that wasn't good enough for the folks at US Soccer HQ, who responded with the mean-spirited "Lame" tweet.
