Inter Milan centre-back Stefan de Vrij will not join up with the Netherlands squad next week after sustaining an injury.

The 27-year-old injured himself in the warm-up before last week’s 4-0 win over Lecce and missed the clash with Cagliari on Sunday.

De Vrij has decided to pull out of the Oranje squad for the clashes with Germany and Estonia. Ronald Koeman has confirmed that no replacement will be called up.

That leaves Virgil van Dijk, Matthijs de Ligt, Nathan Ake and Joel Veltman as the centre-back options for Koeman.
