Harry Redknapp faces an anxious wait over the health of Rafael van der Vaart after he was injured in Holland's 0-0 draw with Switzerland.

Van der Vaart hurt his hamstring on Friday night, not for the first time this season, and will definitely miss the prestige friendly with Germany in midweek.

Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk admitted he had no idea of the severity of the problem but conceded the playmaker had no chance of featuring at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg.

Van der Vaart has already spent two spells on the sidelines with injury this season with his hamstring proving particularly fragile.

Spurs' first game after the international break sees them host Aston Villa at White Hart Lane on Monday, 21st November.
