Chelsea winger Arjen Robben has pulled out of the Holland squad for next month´s Asian tour, according to reports in the Dutch media.

The Oranje face South Korea in Seoul on June 2 and Thailand in Bangkok four days later, but Robben will miss the double header due to a shin injury collected during Chelsea´s FA Cup final triumph against Manchester United on Saturday.

The 23-year-old midfielder has struggled with thigh and knee injuries for much of this season, and has made just two substitute appearances for the Blues since his last outing for Holland against Slovenia on March 28.
