Van Persie a doubt for Oranje

Published Add your comment

Arsenal and Holland striker Robin van Persie is a doubt for Wednesday's friendly against England with a groin injury, Oranje coach Bert van Marwijk has confirmed.

Van Persie sat out the last 10 minutes of Holland's hour-long open training session at Wembley after aggravating the problem, which he originally suffered in the Gunners' 5-2 win over Tottenham on Sunday.

The Arsenal frontman, who has been in scintillating form this year, appeared in discomfort towards the end of the training session and missed an eight-a-side practice match at England's national stadium in north London on Tuesday night.
