Van Basten delight at Van Persie return

Netherlands coach Marco Van Basten has expressed his hapiness at having Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie back inhis squad for tonights game against Euro 2008 co-hosts Austria. The 24-year-old has been out for nearly 5 months after limping of in the 2-0 win over Slovakia in October. Van Basten was keen to stress that the striker still has a lot of hard work ahead of him;

“Robin will be able to experience the atmosphere in the camp again. He has trained hard in the past few weeks to get in shape,” said Van Basten. “A lot of big matches await him and Arsenal before the end of the season – hopefully he will play in a lot of those and get in a good rhythm for the European Championship.”
