In-form striker Robin van Persie helped the Netherlands to victory against Turkey in their first 2014 FIFA World Cup Group D qualifier.

Van Persie, who has scored four goals in his first three appearances for Manchester United FC, was restored to the central striking position in place of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar having been left out of last month's friendly against Belgium.
