The Netherlands will compete in next summer's FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil after Robin van Persie struck twice in quick succession to secure the victory in Andorra that confirmed his side as Group D winners.

Yet to score in eight qualifiers, Andorra could claim something of a moral victory as they reached half-time on level terms, with Louis van Gaal's side on top but unable to create much danger in a slow-paced game. Wesley Sneijder went closest, his drive forcing goalkeeper Ferran Pol to a save, while free-kicks from Sneijder and Van Persie went over and wide.
