Netherlands Hopeful As Arjen Robben Injury Not As Bad As First Feared

Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk is hoping injured winger Arjen Robben can recover in time to play some part for the Oranje at the World Cup finals after tests over the weekend showed the injury was not as bad as first feared.

The 26-year-old Bayern Munich star picked up a hamstring injury in the 6-1 friendly win over Hungary, sparking fears that he would miss the entire tournament but van Marwijk has declared that he will not replace Robben in the 23-man squad, giving him the opportunity to rejoin the squad when he recovers.

The story is too old to be commented.

Pff, this make me really happy! Hope he is back as we reached the second round. We can win the groupstage also without Robben, but in the finals we need specific weapons and Robben have that!

Beautiful statement, I love him ^^
