Boulahrouz's Daughter :(

Recommended Posts

If anyone does not know the story behind it, the premature baby daughter of Khaild Boulrahouz has passed away. He left the Dutch camp on Wednesday after his wife, Sabia, was hospitalised. He is avaliable for the Netherlands' Euro 2008 quarter-final against Russia. Boulahrouz returned to training today and should start in Basel. "He told me, 'I am a football player and I am available on Saturday'," said Netherlands coach Marco van Basten. "Khalid indicated early on Thursday that he had given the events a special place. He thanked the players and staff and wants to move on. Khalid is experiencing a dreadful time but he reacted like an adult and wanted the squad to focus on the quarter-final with Russia."

"Players and staff of the Dutch team are upset by the death of Anissa, the daughter of Khalid Boulahrouz and his wife Sabia, who was born prematurely," the Dutch Football Federation said in a statement.
