March 2 (Reuters) - Netherlands defender Paul Verhaegh has been ruled out of Wednesday's friendly against France in Paris after suffering a gash on his knee in Bundesliga action, the Dutch football association (KNVB) said.
The Augsburg right back will be out for two weeks after being hurt in a collision with Mame Diouf in Saturday's match against Hanover.
The KNVB said any decision on a possible replacement would be made on Monday by coach Louis van Gaal.
