Blow for the Netherlands

Just after I pick the Dutch to win the Euros, here comes the news that winger Ryan Babel will miss the entire tournament after tearing ankle ligaments in training on Saturday.

Coach Marco van Basten has yet to name a replacement but will do so as soon as Babel’s injury is confirmed by a UEFA doctor.

Holland faces Italy on June 9th in their opening match of the tournament.
