Kuyt Fears Injury Big This Time

Dirk Kuyt is hoping for good
news from doctors amid fears
that he will miss the rest of 2010

ligaments suffered while playing
for Holland on Tuesday night.

Kuyt was substituted after 29
minutes on Tuesday night when
he landed awkwardly after

after the match, but admitted: ‘It
doesn’t look good.’
Unconfirmed reports in Holland
suggest ankle ligaments could
have been torn rather than
strained, putting Kuyt out for the
rest of the year, but the results of
hospital tests are not yet known.
