PSV Eindhoven defender André Ooijer has been ruled out for several weeks with a broken toe.

Miserable night
The 31-year-old injured his right foot during his side's 1-0 home defeat against Olympique Lyonnais last night, and hospital tests have revealed that he will not play again for between four to six weeks. As well as missing his side's first knockout round return against Lyon on 8 March, Ooijer has had to withdraw from the Netherlands squad to face Ecuador in a 1 March friendly.
