Ruud van Nistelrooy and Edwin van der Sar will miss Holland´s final Euro 2008 qualifier against Belarus on Wednesday.

Van Nistelrooy picked up a slight thigh injury which forced him to be substituted at the interval as the Dutch clinched their place in Austria and Switzerland with a 1-0 win over Luxembourg on Saturday.

Van der Sar heads back to Manchester United as per the terms of his agreement with national coach Marco van Basten. The goalkeeper only plays in games where something is at stake so returns to his club with Holland´s place in the finals now assured.
