thumbnail Hello,

The Netherlands attacker seems to be getting better with age and has figured crucially in all three of their games as they emerged as one of the favourites for the World Cup

He looks about 50, but boy can he play. Arjen Robben has taken the World Cup by storm so far, having starred for the Netherlands as they topped a difficult Group B.

The 30-year-old attacker tormented Spain, alongside Robin van Persie, as they recovered from going a goal down to comprehensively thrash the defending champions 5-1.

He struck twice, the second a stunning solo goal that saw him race from the halfway line and beat two defenders and goalkeeper, before smashing it into the back of the net for the final nail in the coffin.

Arguably the Oranje's Player of Passion so far, the Bayern Munich star continued his fine form in the second game by clinically firing them ahead against Australia, whom they eventually edged 3-2 in a thriller.



Robben provided another vital contribution in their third match against Chile, drawing on his Inner Steel in the dying moments of the game to accelerate away down the left before picking out Memphis Depay to slot home the second goals in a 2-0 win.

Armed with fearsome pace and a huge bag of tricks, the left-footed Robben is a nightmare for any opponent with his ability to play anywhere across the final third. Vision and creativity are assets he has in abundance as well and all of his best qualities have been on display so far, making him our pick as the Gillette Player of Steel in Group B.

In football, just as in shaving, the best outcome is determined by precision. When the smallest details make the biggest difference between winning and losing, a mental and physical toughness is needed – a true show of Inner Steel. For football fans who are driven by their passion and their own inner steel, Gillette introduces the Special Edition Brazil Team Razor - available at stores nationwide now for a limited time only.
