Robben to miss Netherlands friendly

Munich - The Netherlands will have to do without the services of FC Bayern München winger when they host Colombia in Amsterdam on Tuesday.

Fit for Dortmund clash

The 29-year-old is suffering from an ankle injury which he picked up in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Japan.

“There is still fluid in [his] ankle,” said Netherlands and former Bayern head coach Louis van Gaal. “This game comes too soon.”

Robben, who captained the Dutch side against Japan and hit the net along with Hamburger SV playmaker Rafael van der Vaart, is expected to be available for Saturday's crunch encounter at second-placed Borussia Dortmund, however.
