Midfielder Klaassen out of Netherlands squad with injury

AMSTERDAM (AP) -- Davy Klaassen has pulled out of the Netherlands squad for friendlies against Wales and Germany because of a knee injury.

The team announced Wednesday that Netherlands coach Danny Blind will not call up a replacement for the Ajax midfielder.

The Netherlands, which failed to qualify for next year's European Championship, plays Wales on Friday in Cardiff and World Cup champion Germany next Tuesday in Hanover.

Blind will be using upcoming friendlies to begin rebuilding his team after its disappointing Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.
