Manchester United striker Robin van Persie continues to talk up the ability of Holland teammate Jordy Clasie.

The Feyenoord midfielder was linked with United before the World Cup.

Clasie is yet to feature for the Oranje in Brazil, but Van Persie insists: "Jordy likes to play and he deserves to, because he works hard in training.

"I think it's great that twenty players have so far participated, which is an important part of the process towards winning the Cup."
