Feyenoord midfielder Jordy Clasie won praise from his Holland captain Robin van Persie on the weekend. Clasie is being linked with RvP's Manchester United and laid on the striker's goal for their draw with friendly opponents Ecuador.

Van Persie said: "That pass made the goal possible. That was a world-class ball. That pass gave me the opportunity to do my thing. I think that pass was more beautiful than my goal.

"The only thing I had to do was control the ball and score. That pass from Clasie was world class."
