Goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen breaks nose before England friendly
Oranje goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen broke his nose during training in Alkmaar on Sunday, which means that he will be missing the friendly match against England at Wembley on Tuesday, ANP reports.
Cillessen broke his nose in a hard collision with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. "I wanted to avoid him. But I hit him with my foot", Huntelaar said to the news wire. "I also broke my nose once. It's not nice."
Daley Blind also left training early, but should still be able to play against England on Tuesday. "My hamstring is stiff. I did not want to take any risks in view of the upcoming matches. We'll have to see how it goes. But I don't think it's that bad", he said.
Oranje will also have to play without Wesley Sneijder on Tuesday. He injured his hamstring in the match against France on Friday.
