Gunner was forced off just prior to the break in eight-goal thriller with Hungary but national boss plays down fears over severity of knock
The Arsenal striker opened the scoring in the 5-3 victory over Hungary but picked up a knock in the first half and was unable to return to action.
It had initially been speculated that the forward could spend a significant amount of time on the sidelines, but the player's national team boss believes otherwise.
Van Marwijk told reporters: "It didn't look very serious but it was too painful for him to carry on as he was hit by a knee just above his own knee."
Van Persie has in the past missed significant chunks of time for Arsenal due to injuries, and has only recently returned from a knee complaint picked up in the League Cup final defeat to Birmingham.
