The midfielder suffered a muscle injury during the first half of Roma’s win over AC Milan at the weekend, but was still expected to join up with the Oranje squad.

However, the KNVB have now confirmed that Strootman will miss the final two World Cup qualifiers. Dick Advocaat has decided against calling up a replacement and will go forward with 24 players.

Netherlands travel to Belarus on Saturday before hosting Sweden on Tuesday.
