Memphis Depay will not travel to Minsk with the rest of the Netherlands squad after suffering a thigh issue.

Memphis has been crucial for the Netherlands in this qualifying campaign with six goals and six assists in five games. On Thursday, he scored twice in the 3-1 win over Northern Ireland.

However, Ronald Koeman will have to do without his star striker for the clash in Belarus on Sunday. The Lyon attacker has a thigh issue and will not be risked.

No replacement will be called, meaning Koeman must now choose a three man attack from Steven Bergwijn, Quincy Promes, Donyell Malen, Luuk de Jong, Ryan Babel and Steven Berghuis.
