Robben Hamstring Injury

Holland coach Bert van Marwijk admits he is very concerned about the hamstring injury picked up by Arjen Robben in today's World Cup warm-up victory over Hungary.

Robben came on as a half-time substitute in the 6-1 rout at the Amsterdam ArenA and scored two goals before being forced off with the injury five minutes from time.
Robben injured?  It's a bit man-bites-dog.  But it is a shame because he's always so much fun to watch.

I guess we won't have to worry about will they or won't they play Sneijder and Van der Vaart together (which is Dutch for Lampard and Gerrard) but they'll miss Robben as he's been in the form of his life this season.


  1. i feel for the man! that is how i got injured too. my backheel was not a pass, but a goal. i made the backheel, hit it well, turned to see the ball go in the net, my one cleat was planted, then the goalie hit the back of my ankle, when i turned, i crumpled to the ground like robben. i have been playing sporadically for 4 months, now.
