AT THE END OF THE MATCH VAN GAAL AND HIS COACHING STAFF INCLUDING PATRICK KLUIVERT (LEFT) CONGRATULATE EACH OTHER ON THE VICTORY STORY: Goals from Robin van Persie and Luciano Narsingh got the Netherlands back on track after a disappointing European Championship campaign as they beat Turkey 2-0 in their opening Group D World Cup qualifier on Friday (September 7). Van Persie put the Dutch in front after 17 minutes while Narsingh broke through on the counter attack in added time to seal an 11th straight World Cup qualifying win for the hosts. The home side's rejigged defence, including 20-year-old Bruno Martins Indi and teenager Jetro Willems, made a shaky start but despite the Turks enjoying the better of the opening exchanges backed by about 20,000 fans, the Dutch opened the scoring when Van Persie met a Wesley Sneijder corner. The goal boosted the home side's confidence but their careless defending continued when Willems lost the ball to Arda Turan only for the midfielder to shoot wide. Just before the break Netherlands keeper Tim Krul hesitated and almost let in Umut Bulut whose header hit the bar. Turkey began to run out of ideas and energy in the second half, allowing the Dutch to regroup and take the game to the visitors. Narsingh wrapped up the victory in stoppage time when the Turkish defence were caught having pushed forward in search of an equaliser.
