Sneijder set to miss Inter tie

Netherlands midfielder Wesley Sneijder is a major doubt for AFC Ajax's UEFA Champions League second-leg visit to FC Internazionale Milano on 14 March.

Wesley Sneijder is a major doubt for AFC Ajax's UEFA Champions League second-leg visit to FC Internazionale Milano on 14 March. Coach Danny Blind has admitted the 21-year-old Netherlands midfielder is still not match fit after picking up a hamstring injury in early February.

Still sidelined
"Wesley is 95 per cent there, but that final step is so difficult," said Blind. "I think we will be without him for the games against PSV Eindhoven and Inter, maybe even longer." Sneijder has been sidelined since the Eredivisie defeat at Feyenoord on 5 February. The Amsterdam outfit lost a two-goal lead in the first leg of the first knockout round tie against Inter to draw 2-2.
