The Netherlands, featuring Arsenal's own Robin van Persie, who starts, and whom you can read words by Aidan Gibson about here, take on Denmark, who feature Arsenal's...own?...Nicklas Bendtner. The decision to start RvP is a controversial one in many respects, as Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is the favorite of many a Dutch person and did not have a shabby season for Schalke 04, scoring, oh, 48 goals in 47 appearances. But it's RvP, and we'll see what happens! Here are the lineups from the main site:

Holland (4-2-3-1): Maarten Stekelenburg; Jetro Willems, Ron Vlaar, John Heitinga, Gregory van der Wiel; Nigel de Jong, Mark van Bommel; Ibrahim Affelay, Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben; Robin van Persie.

Denmark (4-2-3-1): Stephan Andersen; Simon Poulsen, Simon Kjaer, Daniel Agger, Lars Jacobsen; William Kvist, Niki Zimling; Michael Krohn-Delhi, Christian Eriksen, Dennis Rommedahl; Nicklas Bendtner.
