Nigel de Jong dropped by Netherlands after tackle

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP)—Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk has dropped Nigel de Jong from his squad after the Manchester City midfielder was involved in a tackle that left Newcastle winger Hatem Ben Arfa with a broken left leg.

Van Marwijk said Monday he saw “no alternative” but to drop De Jong from his squad to play Moldova and Sweden in two European Championship qualifiers.

The France international was injured in a robust tackle by De Jong in the third minute of Sunday’s match, which City won 2-1.

Newcastle said x-rays confirmed Ben Arfa had suffered a broken tibia and fibula of his left leg and would undergo surgery Monday morning.
