Team News: Robin van Persie returns for Mexico clash

Robin van Persie returns to the fold for the Netherlands' clash with Mexico following a one-game suspension.

Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal has the luxury of naming striker Robin van Persie in his starting lineup for this evening's World Cup last-16 encounter with Mexico.

Van Persie sat out the 2-0 victory over Chile through suspension, but the Manchester United hitman returns today to spearhead the Oranje attack.

Paul Verhaegh also comes into the side at the expense of Daryl Janmaat as Van Gaal names two changes in total from the win over the Chileans.

Meanwhile, Mexico boss Miguel Herrera has named one change to his team from the 3-1 win over Croatia, with the suspended Jose Vazquez making way for Carlos Salcido.

Netherlands: Cillessen; Vlaar, Blind, De Vrij, Verhaegh; De Jong, Wijnaldum, Kuyt, Sneijder; Robben; Van Persie
