THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - Netherlands goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen broke his nose in a training-ground collision with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar on Sunday, prompting coach Danny Blind to bring Tottenham reserve keeper Michel Vorm into the squad for Tuesday’s friendly against England at Wembley.

It was the latest in a long string of injuries to hit the Dutch squad, which lost 3-2 to France in Amsterdam on Friday. A day later, England overcame a two-goal deficit to beat world champion Germany 3-2, with Vorm’s Spurs teammates Harry Kane and Eric Dier both finding the net.

Blind also called up Marco van Ginkel after midfielders Wesley Sneijder and Davy Klaassen left the squad with injuries.

Captain Arjen Robben also is out, along with three defenders originally selected for the friendlies.
