Injured Netherlands defender Jairo Riedewald has been replaced by Erik Pieters for upcoming international friendlies against Wales and Germany.

Pieters has been drafted in after Ajax centre-back Riedewald suffered a knee injury in the Eredivisie on Sunday.

Riedewald was hurt during league-leading Ajax’s 1-1 draw at Feyenoord.

The 19-year-old’s withdrawal has opened the door for Pieters, who has been an immovable force for Stoke City this season.

Pieters – an 18-cap international – has started all 12 of Stoke’s Premier League fixtures this term.

Netherlands travel to Wales on Friday, which is followed by a showdown with world champions Germany four days later.
