Krul's untimely injury
Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul will miss Holland's World Cup qualifier against Hungary on Tuesday after picking up an elbow injury.
The fitness blow couldn't have come at a worse time for the Magpies stopper, who had been selected ahead of Maarten Stekelenburg and Swansea favourite Michel Vorm for Friday's 2-0 victory over Turkey.
Dutch coach Louis val Gaal has now added 21-year-old Jeroen Zoet from RKC Waalwijk to his squad as a replacement. while Krul has returned to the North-East for treatment after suffering the injury during training on Saturday.
The club's medical staff will need to assess the severity of the problem first before it is known how long he will be out for, but United boss Alan Pardew will be keeping his fingers crossed that the damage isn't too bad.
