Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has handed the Dutch World Cup camp an injury scare.

Van Persie left Holland's training camp with his left thigh taped up after their hour long session in Rio yesterday.

The Manchester United forward, who is crucial to Louis van Gaal's hopes of winning the country's first World Cup, was heavily taped up around his left thigh as he left their Flamengo training base.

Holland play Costa Rica in Salvador in the quarter-final on Saturday and need van Persie to be fit.
