Wigan Athletic captain Mario Melchiot has pulled out of the Holland squad for their game against Switzerland in Geneva tonight

Melchiot is not injured but he`s withdrawn through illness, this is a similar situation to Jason Koumas withdrawing from the Welsh squad

One explanation could be a feeling of nausea brought on by vertigo with the Latics so high up the Premiership table.

Both are expected to be fit for Saturday`s match at West Ham

Meanwhile Latics youngster David Cotterill scored for the Wales under 21 team in an amazing come back game against Sweden

At one point the Welsh were trailing 3-1 but went on to win the game 4-3

Do you feel this weeks friendly internationals are justified or a waste of time?
