Holland coach Marco van Basten has acted to soothe his simmering relationship with Arjen Robben.

The Real Madrid winger was left out of the Holland squad for their friendly against Austria on Wednesday night, which prompted Robben to question whether he is still a part of Van Basten´s plans ahead of this summer´s European Championships.

"A fit Robben is of value to the team," Van Basten said.
