Holland coach Marco van Basten is set to make an exception to his rule of not including injury-prone players in his Euro 2008 squad for "special" Robin van Persie.

Preparations for next month´s finals in Austria and Switzerland move up a gear on Saturday when Oranje take on Ukraine, with further warm-up games lined up against Denmark and Wales.

"It´s important to take fit players to the tournament," said the 43-year-old coach, who has to reduce his 26-man squad to 23 by May 28.
