Robin Van Persie Misses a Sitter at Euro 2012
The Dutch team as a whole could be considered Euro 2012's biggest flops to date. Pre-tournament, the World Cup 2010 runners-up were third favorites after Spain and Germany to win it all. Instead, they were sent packing without a single win.
A major source of Holland's demise was their shocking lack of goals. For a team with such a wealth of attacking players to score just twice in three matches, ranking down at the bottom with Poland and Ireland, was stunning even in such a tough group.
Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar all disappointed, but no one blew as many chances as star striker Robin Van Persie, a popular pre-tournament favorite to win the Golden Boot. Demonstrably off-form, the Arsenal forward failed again and again to show the touch that made him top scorer in the English Premier League last season.
