Robben to miss Dutch opener

09 Jun 2010 - 07:00:31

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has been ruled out of Netherlands' World Cup opener against Denmark on Monday.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid star suffered a small tear in his hamstring during the nation's 6-1 friendly triumph over Hungary recently and, despite extensive treatment with physio Dick van Toorn, coach Bert van Marwijk has admitted he will not be risked against the Danes in Johannesburg.

Speaking to reporters, van Marwijk said: "Since the final of the Champions League, Arjen has hardly played.

"It is illusory to believe that he will be ready to face Denmark. Whatever one may say, his injury is serious and I do not know when he can join us.

"The team's goal now is to go as far as possible in the competition to allow Arjen to play with us during this World Cup."
