Netherlands winger Arjen Robben limped off the field with a hamstring injury Saturday in the team's 6-1 rout of Hungary in a World Cup warmup match, delaying his departure for South Africa.
Robben, who came on as a second-half substitute, scored two goals before leaving the game in the 85th minute. Robin van Persie, Wesley Sneijder, Mark van Bommel and Eljero Elia added the others.
There was no immediate word on the extent of Robben's injury. He fell awkwardly after cutting inside from the right and trying to deliver a deft pass to the right with his left foot.
"I thought to myself, 'This can't be true,"' Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk said. "He made an unnatural movement and injured his hamstring."
Van Marwijk said Robben would not fly with the Netherlands team to South Africa on Saturday night and would undergo scans on Sunday.
"You sometimes see that people with injuries like this are fit again in a few weeks," the coach said. "I'm hoping for that."
Van Persie said he hoped that Robben would be OK and ready to play at the World Cup in South Africa.
"I hope he's OK, because he's a very important player for us," Van Persie said. "Everyone is down now."
Balazs Dzudzsak had given Hungary the lead with a goal that exposed Dutch defensive frailties, but the Dutch midfield controlled the game after that.
After Dzudzsak had been given too much room by Giovanni van Bronckhorst to open the scoring in the sixth minute, Van Persie equalized in the 22nd with a low, left-foot shot after Dirk Kuyt had dispossessed Szabolcs Huszti and cut the ball back.
Robben came on after the break and retrieved a ball on the right and passed to Van Persie. He laid the ball back to Sneijder in the 50th, but his shot was saved by goalkeeper Marton Fulop. A minute later, Fulop had to save again when Robben cut in from the right and shot.
Despite Robben's threat on the right, the Dutch went ahead with a goal from the left. Van Bronckhorst crossed for Sneijder to tap in from close range. Van Bronckhorst was the provider again in the 64th when his diagonal pass from the left was tapped in at the far post by Robben.
Robben scored his second with another curling left foot shot in the 78th.
Elia scored the best Dutch goal of the match just a minute after coming on in the 73rd as a substitute. The left winger beat three defenders and sent a shot through the legs of a fourth to make it 5-1 before Robben scored his second and then got injured.
"He made a strange movement that I don't think was necessary," Hungary coach Erwin Koeman said.
Robben was not the only Dutch injury worry. Centre back John Heitinga was substituted after about an hour and his ankle was immediately wrapped in ice.
The match was the Netherlands final warmup before leaving for South Africa. They earlier beat Mexico 2-1 and Ghana 4-1 to extend their unbeaten run to a national record 18 matches.
Hungary did not qualify for the World Cup, but will meet the Netherlands in the qualifying tournament for the 2012 European Championship.
