Arjen Robben will miss Italy and France games, possibly whole first round of Euro 2008

Netherlands winger Arjen Robben could miss the whole of the first round of the European Championship because of a groin injury.
Coach Marco van Basten said Sunday that the Real Madrid player is definitely out of games against Italy and France, leaving him a contender only for the final Group C match against Romania.
Robben, who had been in good form during the Netherlands' warmups, simply did running exercises away from the team but could not move freely.
"He will be out seven to 10 days, in the most positive case a little bit less," Van Basten said a day before the game against world champion Italy.
The Dutch play France on Friday before meeting Romania on June 17.
