Man Utd star Robin van Persie not an important absentee says Terim [divider]
Turkish national team manager Fatih Terim has revealed that the only player Netherlands will miss is Arjen Robben.
Manchester United star Robin van Persie and Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar will also miss the Euro 2016 qualifier against Turkey.
“There are a number of injuries within the Dutch team but I only feel that Robben is an important missing player. Aside from his absence I don’t feel it’ll be of any influence,” Terim was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.
The Netherlands are currently third in Euro 2016 qualification Group A with six points from four games, while Turkey sit fourth with four points after four games.
Terim is facing a number of injury concerns and missing players as well.
Turkey will be without Arda Turan due to suspension and Ömer Toprak rejected his call up after failing to resolve his issues with Gökhan Töre.
The Crescent-Stars only have one win in Group A, beating Kazakhstan 3-1 at the Türk Telekom Arena.
