Netherlands will be without midfielders Teun Koopmeiners and Frenkie de Jong plus forward Memphis Depay for Sunday's Nations League match at home to Belgium, the team said on Friday. They will be replaced by Ajax Amsterdam striker Brian Brobbey and midfielder Ryan Gravenberch of Bayern Munich.

Koopmeiners left the training camp after suffering an early concussion in the 2-0 win away to Poland on Thursday. De Jong and Memphis sustained thigh problems and had to be substituted. The unbeaten Dutch have won four of their five League A Group Four games and are three points ahead of Belgium, who beat Wales 2-1 on Thursday. Netherlands will qualify for the semi-finals if they avoid defeat by three goals or more.
