Holland striker Robin van Persie has been confirmed injured and is set to miss the friendly against Mexico on Wednesday night with a hamstring problem picked up in training.

Van Persie has been out of form this season and it seems his return to form is getting more impossible everyday.

Although report said it was a minor injury, and that van Persie should return to the starting line-up for the crucial Euro 2016 qualifier against Latvia at the weekend.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar will replace Van Persie in the line-up and is likely to start against the Mexicans.

Huntelaar scored the stoppage time penalty that put Mexico out of the World Cup in Brazil.
