Netherlands will be without Davy Klaassen and Quincy Promes for their two Euro 2016 qualifiers after the midfield pair withdrew due to injury.

Concussion has sidelined Klaassen for vital Group A qualifiers against Kazakhstan and the Czech Republic, while Promes has succumbed to a hamstring issue, the Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB) confirmed on Sunday.

Klaassen, who was hurt during Ajax’s 2-1 loss at home to Eredivisie rivals PSV, has been replaced by 18-year-old debutant Riechedly Bazoer in Danny Blind’s 23-man squad.

In-form Feyenoord winger Eljero Elia will take the place of Promes.

Netherlands – fourth in Group A and desperately needing to win their remaining two matches to claim a play-off spot – travel to Kazakhstan on Saturday, before hosting the already-qualified Czechs three days later in Amsterdam.
