Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has pulled out of the Holland squad for Wednesday night's friendly against Austria due to flu.

Van Persie played the full 90 minutes, scoring twice, for the Gunners in their 4-4 draw with Newcastle at the weekend but has been deemed unfit for the clash in Eindhoven.

Holland boss Bert van Marwijk, who is also without midfielders Rafael van der Vaart and Nigel de Jong, has called up FC Twente's Luuk de Jong as a replacement.
