Six Tottenham stars to feature in England clash against Holland after freak injury prompts call-up
By Tottenham correspondent Tony Hughes
Michel Vorm has been called up to the Holland squad for Tuesday’s international against England, it was announced on Sunday evening.
The Tottenham goalkeeper becomes the sixth Spurs star to be involved for the two teams ahead of the the friendly clash at Wembley.
Vorm, who is Hugh Lloris’ number two at White Hart Lane, replaces Jasper Cillessen in the Holland squad.
Cillessen broke his nose after being caught by team-mate Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in a freak incident during a training session on Sunday.
The Ajax goalkeeper, who played the full 90 minutes of Holland’s 3-2 defeat to France on Friday and was expected to start against England on Tuesday, was in a great deal of pain after Huntelaar’s foot connected with his face.
