Holland's Arjen Robben is expected to be fit to face Macedonia despite missing training.Despite training separately from his team-mates in the Holland squad, Chelsea wing wizard Arjen Robben is expected to be fit to face Macedonia.
The Dutch have already claimed top spot in Group One in emphatic fashion and coach Marco van Basten will be looking for his men to end their campaign on a high ahead of the World Cup finals in Germany next summer.
Robben picked up a hamstring problem in the impressive 2-0 win in Czech Republic on Saturday, although should return in time for the home clash on Wednesday night.
If the Blues star is unable to make van Basten's starting line-up then Ajax starlet Ryan Babel, drafted into the squad to replace Jan Kromkamp, is expected to claim just his second cap.
The absence of Villarreal defender Kromkamp means another up-and-coming Ajax star, Nigel de Jong, could play at right back, whilst PSV Eindhoven's experienced midfielder Philip Cocu misses out due to suspension.
