With halftime approaching and Spain leading 1-0 through Xabi Alonso's penalty, the Dutch needed some World Cup inspiration.

They needed somebody to do something special and get their 2014 campaign started.

Daley Blind produced the pass. Robin van Persie produced a magnificent header to beat Iker Casillas and send the Dutch hordes into celebration.

Here's a wider view of the goal:

Van Persie's manager Louis van Gaal will be looking for more of the same when he takes over at Manchester United this summer.
