Real Madrid star Arjen Robben claims he cannot remember the last time he spoke to Holland coach Marco van Basten.

Injuries have plagued the winger this season, but he returned to the Madrid side from a twisted ankle this weekend, coming off the bench in the 3-2 defeat against Valencia. There was no place for him in Van Basten´s squad for Wednesday´s friendly against Euro 2008 co-hosts Austria, though.

And the 24-year-old told Sportweek magazine: "When I was important to the Oranje there was a lot of contact. Now I can´t even remember when I last spoke with him."
