Injuries hit Dutch hopes against Bulgaria

Two of the top footballers in the Dutch national team are injured and are unlikely to play in the European Championship qualifying round against Bulgaria on Saturday.

Dirk Kuyt has problems with a toe and Rafael van der Vaart is suffering from a ham string injury. Both players were absent from yesterday’s training session.
A third player, Wesley Snijder, is not fully fit either but was at the training session. He has a light groin injury.
