Holland's Jetro Willems ruled out of World Cup

Netherlands left-back Jetro Willems will miss the World Cup in Brazil this summer after suffering knee ligament damage while playing for PSV Eindhoven.

Netherlands full-back Jetro Willems will miss the World Cup this summer after suffering a knee injury.

The 20-year-old suffered ligament damage in PSV Eindhoven's defeat to Feyenoord on Saturday.

Willems, who has been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal, seemed to be a certainty for Louis van Gaal's 23-man squad after starting throughout their qualification campaign when fit.

In a statement on the PSV website, the club said: "Jetro Willems is to miss the rest of PSV's season after having been ruled out for several months with knee ligament injury.

"PSV's medical staff reports that the 20-year-old left-back has damaged his knee. Willems hopes to be fit again for pre-season training."

Willems was the youngest player at the 2012 European Championships.
