Cillessen becomes the second player to be ruled out of Tuesday’s match after Wesley Sneijder succumb to injury in the defeat to France on Friday. Coach Danny Blind now needs to decide whether he calls a replacement or just continues with Kenneth Vermeer and Jeroen Zoet.

Daley Blind also sat out of the session after complaints of a tight hamstring, but the Manchester United star should be fine to face England.
