Robben’s Remarkable Run


=======================================================
Two-time Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN (11) of German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich is no stranger to the city of London having spent three seasons at Stamford Bridge with FC Chelsea, where the Dangerous Dutchman won two Premier League crowns as well as an F.A. Cup title before transferring to Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid in exchange for 35.0 million Euros in the summer of 2007.

As confirmed by no less of an authority than well-respected English football commentator MARTIN TYLER, himself, the first goal scored by ARJEN ROBBEN in the international friendly match between visiting HOLLAND and host ENGLAND has no alternative but to be considered one of the most brilliant ever taken at the hallowed ground known as Wembley Stadium.

Indeed, it is not often one watches a footballer take possession so deep on his side of midfield and then gallop so gracefully for such a great length before lashing an absolute pinpoint laser into the corner of the net.

England winger DANIEL STURRIDGE of FC Chelsea could have easily given far more effort towards tracking Robben back. And there was absolutely no need for the two England defenders, GARY CAHILL of FC Chelsea and CHRIS SMALLING of Manchester United, to both shadow Dutch striker KLAAS-JAN HUNTELAAR of German Bundesliga side Schalke 04 Gelsenkirchen. But the class and quality of Robben’s strike from inside the half moon at the top of the box left England goalkeeper JOE HART of Manchester City little hope and is, without question, etched-in-memory, top shelf stuff.

Robben, of course, also later netted the injury-time match-winner in the friendly against England at Wembley and, by doing so, boosted his international total to 17 goals from 54 appearances for the national team of Holland.
