OMG! What a Goal: Robin Van Persie

By Jimmy LaRoue

Robin Van Persie scored a stunner of a goal today for Manchester United.

Van Persie had a hat trick within the first 33 minutes of the match, and though some will talk about the non-offside calls on the goals, no one can dispute the pin-point technique and skill from both Rooney and Van Persie on the play.

Here’s the stunner.
