Further van der Vaart injury blow for Tottenham

Tottenham playmaker Rafael van der Vaart seems to have picked up another injury. The Dutchman limped off in the international friendly between Holland and Switzerland on Friday night, and though the severity of the injury is yet to be confirmed, he will definitely miss his country’s upcoming midweek clash with rivals Germany.

This injury appears to be a further recurrence of the hamstring injury that has already sidelined the former Real Madrid man twice this season, as it was described by Dutch coach Bert Van Marwijk as “a spasm in his thigh”.

Encouragingly however, Van Marwijk then told FIFA.com that “it is not serious, but the Germany match will be too soon for him”.
