Netherlands international Daley Blind has been withdrawn from this week's friendlies with Poland and Austria after sustaining a calf injury.
The 26-year-old Manchester United defender, who is the son of Netherlands' manager Danny Blind, was injured during his club side's FA Cup win over Crystal Palace.
The Netherlands failed to reach Euro 2016 after finishing fourth in their qualifying group.
However, Blind, who has been capped 31 times for the Netherlands, was hoping to play games against Poland in Gdansk on Wednesday and Austria in Vienna on Saturday.
He sat out the Netherlands' 1-1 draw with Ireland in Dublin on Friday.
In a statement the Dutch FA said: "Blind is still feeling the effects of the injury he picked up in the FA Cup final on May 21 and will not travel with the team."
