Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk will keep Arjen Robben in his World Cup squad after the winger’s hamstring injury proved less serious than first thought following a scan on Sunday.

The Dutch FA (KNVB) said in a statement that Robben damaged his left hamstring during the closing minutes of the team’s last warm-up match against Hungary.

Robben came on after the break for his first appearance in the warm-up campaign and scored twice as the Dutch thrashed Hungary 6-1 before limping off the pitch.
