  • Intro:

    Goals in each half from Robin van Persie and Wesley Sneijder helped the Netherlands to a 2-0 win over 10-man China 2-0 in a friendly international in Beijing on Tuesday.


    The Netherlands faced China in the second match of their international tour on Tuesday.

    They had already beaten Indonesia 3-0 last Friday - and made it two wins from two with a 2-0 success over China.

    The hosts were the first to threaten, but Zheng Zhi failed to direct his free header on target in the 9th minute.

    Just a minute later the Netherlands were awarded a penalty for Zhang Linpeng's reckless challenge on Arjen Robben.

    Manchester United striker Robin van Persie made no mistake from the spot.

    The match was witness to some wild challenges, the worst of which came in the 13th minute as Jonathan De Guzman was brought down by Qin Sheng.

    Qin deservedly picked up a straight red card for the studs-up foul.

    China's manager Juan Antonio Camacho was clearly unhappy about the decision as he demonstrated with the fourth official.

    Shortly after the half hour mark there was a moment that no man wants to go through - Siem de Jong was caught flush in the private area as Li Xuepeng tried clearing the ball.

    De Jong was clearly in pain but managed to continue.

    The Dutch hit the woodwork twice in the space of seconds just after the half-time break as first Van Persie struck the post and then Robben's follow-up rattled off the crossbar.

    Substitute Wesley Sneijder finally doubled the Netherlands lead in the 66th minute - with a neat backheel after combining with Van Persie and Robben.

    The Dutch couldn't add any further goals as they finished their tour with a 2-0 win.
