The centre-back has revealed that he suffered the problem last week and shouldn't have really featured during his side's 1-1 draw away at Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
"I have a pulled groin," he said. "It was something that should have kept me out on Sunday but it did not. It takes hopefully only a few days [to recover].
"The reason why I have cancelled for Wednesday is that it is a bit early to play three days after I played 90 minutes with a groin problem."
The 27-year-old has made 53 appearances for his country.
