The Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk has received some disappointing news on the injury front in the build-up to the international friendly against Turkey on Wednesday evening in the Amsterdam ArenA.
The Dutch gaffer will have to make do without the services of Stuttgart defender Khalid Boulahrouz and Ajax duo Urby Emanuelson and Demy de Zeeuw when Oranje take on the Turks on Wednesday.
Boulahrouz came off the bench at half-time in Stuttgart's 3-3 draw against Kaiserslautern at the weekend, but was forced to leave the pitch again only 20 minutes later due to a thigh injury.
De Zeeuw has been plagued by various injury problems ever since the 2010 World Cup and picked up a back injury in Ajax's 2-0 away loss against AZ on Sunday. Emanuelson sustained a leg injury in the same match and was replaced at the hour mark due to the knock.
Van Marwijk has made it clear that he won't call up any replacements for the friendly game against Guus Hiddink's Turkey.
