Vincent Janssen has stated on Twitter that he will not be involved in the Netherlands’ clash against Luxembourg on Sunday after a collision with Simon Mignolet on Wednesday evening.
The 22-year-old Tottenham forward lasted just 27 minutes on the pitch in his country’s friendly against Belgium before receiving a punch in the head from the Liverpool goalkeeper.
The collision left a huge mark on Janssen, who was rushed off of the pitch and he has now told fans on his personal Twitter account that he won’t feature in Sunday’s game and that he went through “easy training” on Friday.
The striker has started his career in north London slowly with just three penalty goals from his first 17 appearances for the club following his £17million move from AZ Alkmaar in the summer.
However, fans will be hoping for a quick recovery to their striker with a home fixture against West Ham coming up after the international break.
The north London side are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League after 11 fixtures and they currently sit in fifth place with 21 points.
The injury to Janssen won’t have hit the team as badly as it would have had star forward Harry Kane not returned from a long injury lay-off in the most recent fixture against Arsenal.
