thumbnail Hello,

The Dutch winger appeared displeased with coach Bert van Marwijk's decision to withdraw him in the second half but received a good reception from the Oranje supporters

Netherlands' midfielder Arjen Robben marched angrily from the field of play after being substituted in the Oranje's 2-1 Euro 2012 defeat to long-time rivals Germany.

The Bayern Munich man was replaced by Dirk Kuyt 83 minutes into the contest and showcased his displeasure by vaulting the advertising hoardings and walking round the pitch instead of going to shake hands with his team-mate.

The 28-year-old trudged past the Dutch supporters on his way to the bench and was roundly applauded by the travelling fans who chanted his name despite his display of petulance.

Defeat to Germany leaves the Netherlands bottom of Group B with no points collected from their two games so far. However, Bert van Marwijk's team can still qualify for the knockout stages if they beat Portugal by two or more goals and Germany beat Denmark on Sunday.
