Galatasaray star Wesley Sneijder believes the Netherlands can still get a good result in their European championship group game against Turkey without Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben.
“We can also get a good result without Arjen and Robin,” Sneijder was quoted as saying by De Telegraaf.
“Although you don’t need a degree in maths to know that their absence is a bit of a blow.”
The Netherlands will be without Manchester United striker Van Persie and Bayern Munich winger Robben against Turkey next week due to injury.
