Robben doubtful for Euro qualifier


AMSTERDAM - Arjen Robben’s chances of making the Netherlands line-up for their opening Euro 2016 qualifier against the Czech Republic on Tuesday are slim, new coach Guus Hiddink said. “It is looking very difficult, we haven’t had any contact with him yet,” Hiddink told reporters as the Dutch readied to take on Italy in a friendly in Bari later on Thursday before next week’s clash in Prague. Robben has an ankle injury which keeps him out of the Italy clash but the Dutch hope it might heal in time for the tricky qualifier. “He hasn’t done any training and it would be very difficult to get him into the swing of things in just a couple of days before the match against the Czechs,” Hiddink warned. However, the coach said striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar would not be available to play the Czechs.–Reuters
