[picappgallerysingle id=”9336218″]After being the subject of a debate between Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk, Robin Van Persie came through his international match for Holland unscathed.

The Dutch manager played Van Persie for the second half of their friendly encounter against Turkey with the match locked at 0-0, and played a significant role in the only goal of the match.

It was the Arsenal forward who crossed for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to turn into the net, and both the Netherlands and the Gunners can be encouraged by his display.

Arsene Wenger was particularly concerned that his player would suffer a recurrence of his injury, as he has not had one injury-free season since moving to the Emirates.

Elsewhere, Andriy Arshavin played the full match as Russia went down to Belgium and Tomas Rosicky played 45 minutes for the Czech Republic.

Samir Nasri played the whole match for France against England, while Bacary Sagna played most of the game. Kieran Gibbs continued his journey back to fitness purposes, with Theo Walcott also on the pitch for the first half. Lukasz Fabianski and Emmanuel Eboue were opponents as Cote D’Ivoire played against Poland, and Johan Djourou played for Switzerland.
