Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Rafael van der Vaart to miss the Netherlands' game with England
3:33pm Monday 27th February 2012 in Sport
Rafael van der Vaart has withdrawn from the Netherlands squad to take on England on Wednesday.
The Dutchman picked up an ankle injury in Sunday’s 5-2 defeat at Arsenal and will now miss the Wembley friendly.
Van der Vaart becomes the second Spurs player to be ruled out of the fixture after Kyle Walker earlier withdrew from Stuart Pearce’s squad.
