Virgil van Dijk has been ruled out of Netherlands friendly with Belgium through a rib injury. 

The Netherlands captain was excellent in the 3-0 win over Germany but has been struggling over the past few weeks with a rib injury which he sustained last month against Southampton.

After consultations with the medical team, it has been decided that Van Dijk can sit out the friendly in Belgium on Tuesday and he will instead return to Liverpool.

No replacement is set to be called up.
