The Dutchmen Fly

The Netherlands made a fine start to their World Cup on Sunday with a goal from the inspired Arjen Robben giving them a 1-0 victory over Serbia & Montenegro.

Rising Chelsea star Robben, comfortably the game's outstanding player, gave the Dutchmen the lead in the 18th minute with a cool left-footed finish after he raced clear of the Serbian defence to latch on to a pass from Robin van Persie.
