Van Gaal admits Holland ace Van Persie carrying injury into World Cup
The Netherlands' World Cup bid gets underway on June 13 when they take on holders Spain in Salvador, but van Gaal looks to have captain and striker Van Persie back.
"Van Persie has a groin injury but he can deal with it, so it looks okay," he said.
"I think he's good. He trained with us but it was a light training session. We have to see tomorrow."
