Nigel de Jong has pulled out of the Holland squad for their friendly against Australia.
De Jong picked up an injury during Manchester City's 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw at Aston Villa and will therefore not make the long trip to play in Sydney on Saturday.
Holland are assured of a place in the World Cup finals next summer after finishing top of qualifying Group Nine.
