Netherlands striker Robin Van Persie says he is supporting England against Uruguay this evening.

Rooney is joined in the England squad by Red Devils stars Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Danny Welbeck, while Uruguay have no players from Old Trafford – making Van Persie’s decision about tonight’s game a simple one.
