Football News
Holland coach Marco van Basten has warned Real Madrid winger Arjen Robben he must prove his fitness if he is to force his way back into the squad for Euro 2008.

The 24-year-old has started just five league games for Real since his summer move from Chelsea thanks to continuing problems with a thigh injury.

He told Sportweek magazine: "Arjen must put together a series of games in which he stays fit. If he can play well and train well over that time period, he can become stronger."
