Van der Vaart, Vorm to miss France clash

4 March 2014 17:27

Rafael van der Vaart and Michel Vorm have pulled out of the Netherlands squad for Wednesday's friendly against France due to illness.

Hamburg midfielder Van der Vaart and Swansea City goalkeeper Vorm have flown home from Paris and coach Louis van Gaal has called up Ajax's Siem de Jong in their absence.

Former Real Madrid and Tottenham man Van der Vaart was initially left out of the squad due to an ankle injury and after recovering from that problem, the KNVB have revealed he has now been struck by illness along with Vorm.

De Jong has six international caps to his name and could feature at Stade de France.

The friendly will give Van Gaal and his France counterpart Didier Deschamps an opportunity to step up their preparations for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, which starts in June.
