Midfielder Orlando Engelaar is set to miss another two international matches with the Netherlands as result of a knee injury.

Engelaar, who recently left FC Twente to sign with Schalke 04 in Germany, suffered the injury in the first leg of the Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid two weeks ago.

The player, who formed part of the Dutch team at Euro 2008, also missed Holland’s previous friendly versus Russia last week.

Engelaar did appear in training today but the injury turned out to be too serious.

The Dutch team plays another friendly with Australia on September 6th, followed by their first World Cup qualifier versus FYR Macedonia four days later.
