As the ball floated across the field, van Persie scored a diving header from 15 yards away that went straight past Spain’s goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

The goal ended Casillas’ streak of 476 minutes without allowing a goal at the World Cup and tied the game at 1-1 going into halftime. That’s the third longest streak in history.

The Netherlands ended up winning the game 5-1.
