This means Robben will pull out of Netherlands squad for their crucial Euro qualifier with Turkey on Saturday, and the friendly with Spain three days later.

The injury is a major blow for Netherlands boss Guus Hiddink, who is already without captain Robin van Persie for the must win Euro tie. It is unclear whether Hiddink will call in a replacement.
