Wesley Sneijder picks up injury in warmup, replaced by Jonathan de Guzmán

The Netherlands have been forced into making a late change to their starting lineup against Brazil with Wesley Sneijder having picked up a suspected hamstring injury.

Louis van Gaal has responded by replacing the attacking midfielder with a deeper-lying one, with Jonathan de Guzmán returning to the fold for the first time since early in the tournament.

The switch means the Netherlands will probably look more like a flatter 3-5-2 than a 3-4-1-2, though Georginio Wijnaldum could push up to shoulder the greater creative burden.
