The midfielder is expected to return from injury to the training pitch in two to three weeks.UnfortunateAfellay put up some fine World Cup performances with the Dutch squad U20, until he fell awkwardly during the final group game. Afellay was forced to leave the tournament, which was a major blow for the youngster who was fielded as a genuine number 10 playmaker.
