Holland v Argentina preview

Holland striker Robin van Persie is a doubt for the the World Cup semi-final against Argentina (Wednesday 9pm) after struggling with a stomach complaint.


Midfielder Nigel de Jong could be set for a shock return after recovering from a groin injury which was expected to rule him out for the rest of the competition.

Argentina winger Angel Di Maria will miss the semi-final clash with the Oranje after picking up a thigh injury against Belgium but could return if his country reach the final.

Striker Sergio Aguero has recovered in time after a thigh problem, while left-back Marcos Rojo will return from suspension.

Dutch injury doubts, Ron Vlaar and Leroy Fer fully trained with the rest of the squad on Tuesday, but Van Persie trained away from his team-mates due to an ongoing stomach problem that could see him miss Wednesday evening's showdown.
